Here's a new, unopened and factory sealed counted crosstitch pattern by Lavender & Lace and Marilyn Leavitt-Imblum entitled "Angel of the Sea." This design is L&L 37 of Lavender & Lace by Told in a Garden, this pattern was released in 1996.
The pattern is described by Marilyn Leavitt-Imblum as: "The angel rises from the waves with splashes of tiny pearls. She holds a child in her arms and a seagull floats near her. Ribbons and stars surround her. I used lots of shades of blue and sea greens for the swirling waves crashing at her feet...her dress is emerald. Angel of the Sea has a baby for several reasons. I have baptized my children in the ocean, my blonde daughter has a blonde baby daughter and we live by the sea, many people asked for an angel of the sea to protect their family who work or travel on the ocean, and I felt it represented the small and precious gifts of the sea. It could also mean the Christ Child - the great fisher of souls - held in His mother's arms. She also seems to float carrying what is closest to her heart over the crashing waves. Everyone can imagine their own interpretation, and it will be right for them.."
