A Celtic knotwork border surrounds this elegant wedding sampler, and the text reads: "Wedding Blessing: May God be with you and bless you. May you see your children's children. May you be poor in misfortune, rich in blessings. May you know nothing but happiness. From this day forward, may you have walls for the wind and a roof for the rain, and drinks beside the fire, laughter to cheer you and those you love near you, and all that your heart may desire."

How much fabric do I need?
To calculate the amount of fabric you will need for your project, divide the number of stitches by the stitch count of the fabric you wish to use. The higher the count of your fabric, the smaller your piece will be. Some examples appear below. Remember to leave several additional inches as a border on each side, to facilitate framing your project when it is finished.
