I actually finished something and have hung it up in my own home! (after years of giving gifts that I've stitched I now have a grand total of 2 finished pieces in my house!!  Yay, go me!)

After looking at Brook Owens fifties lady this feels somewhat mundane and staid!! (love that embroidery!!!)

But, hey ho, here it is!!



I painted the frame myself and I used 32 count linen which made me eyes go buggy sometimes.....especially at night!!

Wow, thank you!!  This has been my first finished piece that I've ever submitted to Craftster so I was a bit hesitant!!

I love dandelions too!!  And this one only took me about 5 days to finish so as far as cross stitch goes it was pretty quick.

It's so pretty. I thought it was some sort of print at first and was surprised to see it in the needlework board. It's so simple and elegant. Nice work!
