This is my first completed, framed cross stitch. I love it. I finished it at the beginning of this year for my son, who is now 9! lol.. better late than never, I guess! Any who... here are some pics. It was a lot of backstitching, but well worth it!

The entire, framed piece:

Great piece - but what I love even more is that I'm not the only one that takes forever to finish something Smiley

I really like your work.  Don't feel too bad about the delay, my mother is still working on my birth announcement... I'll be 26 in July.

Thank you Smiley

I actually had to change the colors. All of the blues were supposed to be pinkish colors. Not sure why it would be done as pink for a boy, but hey... Smiley

I was going to do the same pattern for my niece and nephew, but I just can't bring myself to do this project two more times. I'll have to find two more birth samplers. Smiley
