Don't look now....but I FINISHED something!!!

Tra-la-la-la-la!!! Happy dancin' in Upstate NY!!!!! I finished stitching Prairie Schooler's, Autumn Wind, last night and I have to tell you that I am more than happy with it!!! I am amazed! Here it is in it's completely finished state!

Prairie Schooler, Autumn Wind
28ct Lambswool Lugana
DMC
Stitched over one thread
I started this piece WAY back in (I think) 2005 as an SAL with Patti and Cathy. They finished their samplers a very long time ago but I am the turtle and usually get left in the dust during SALs. Funny thing about it though, that mainly happens because I have stitcher's ADD and generally move on to something that's more appealing to me at the time. But eventually, either guilt or guilt gets the best of me and I end up working on it again until that ADD strikes and it's off to the next shiney new project. Gee, now I know why I have eleventy-dozen WIPs...
But never mind, it's done now and I am swirling and twirling around my family room because it's GORGEOUSLY FINISHED!!!
I've also made some progress on Beatrix Potter but no pictures just yet.
