New Acquisition

I spent yesterday afternoon in the city at the Expo center browsing through two buildings full of antiques. And I came home with someone new for you me us.
Ann M. Franks started or finished her work in 1825, comprised of two impossible-to-resist wreaths of flowers enclosing a quote, which, despite missing stitches, I am rather confident reads,

"With all thy soul
Love God above
And as thyself
Thy neighbor love."

I have one other antique in line to be charted first, but hopefully I'll be able to get this lovely sampler ready for release later this year as well. Can you wait?

I love it! I have been looking for something a lil different from the standard sampler to stitch. I will also be patiently awaiting your chart!
