Since I knew he would be recovering from surgery on his birthday, I wanted to give my boyfriend something special.  He loves labs, and this one was too cute to resist. 



The back came out looking as neat as the front, so it ended up in a float frame for equal opportunity viewing.  (And I need to add a picture of the back.)  Don't mind the oven and what not, my kitchen floor worked the best since it is darker cross stitch!

It would have gone faster, but I ended up playing nurse during his recovery and was distracted by other random stuff for a month or so in the middle.  I started it in March and finally finished the back stitching last week.

Even though it wasn't finished ON his birthday he had a great time watching me stitch and picking out the frame.

Looking to de-stash cross stitch magazines, particularly Cross Stitch Gold or New Stitches?  Please drop me a line!  I'd love to swap or buy some missing from my library!

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.
