Blessed Be

All it took was one uninterrupted afternoon of stitching (while watching my favorite TV show, Top Gear) to finish up this little piece.

This is Blessed Be, a complimentary design by Barbara Cooley, of Plum Pudding Needleart.

This finished up right at 3 3/16 X 2 3/4 inches on 32ct Lambswool linen by Wichelt.  The chart comes with suggested DMC colors, but I used hand dyed Sampler Threads and Weeks Dye Works from stash.

It's a very easy stitch- all cross stitch with no fancy stitches.  I'm pleased with the way it finished up.  Of course, I still need to "finish" it.  Any suggestions?

Now I'm off to peruse my stack of charts and pick out my next small project.  Happy stitching!
