First Finish of 2015!

Hello again!  Earlier this week I had my very first project finish for this year!  I came really close with Medieval Lady but my first actual finish this year is my sons owl birth sampler.

Here it was in its "infant stage" the last time I showed it to you...

And here is the big finish!

It is designed by Heather Yothers and I purchased it from her Etsy shop One of a Kind Baby Design.  The colors I chose match my sons crib bedding theme.  It will be awhile before I can get it framed and hang it up on his wall but I can't wait!  Once I completed the border and my sons first name I really lost interest because the stitching wasn't going quite as quickly as I thought it would.  That's when I had to take a small break and restart my HAED Mom and Baby Turtle.  But I did go back and once I finished the owl which I changed slightly from the chart to match the bedding, the rest stitched up fast (even the whole column of dreaded French knots!).  I'm still waiting on my one skein of thread from Amazon and then I will have another finish to show you soon.  Thank you everyone for following my progress and for all of your wonderful comments on my last post.  Happy Stitching!
