A Finish!

I've had a finish!  It's a small one but a finish nonetheless.  It was such a fun stitch.  May I present Sarah Seifer 1826 by The Goode Huswife.  Unfortunately this chart is out of print and is no longer in my stash - I know there are quite a few of you that would love to own it!  Sorry!
The threads were converted to NPI...and I can't find my conversion!  When I do, I'll edit this post.  Adam and Eve are a bit of a different color(not as gray as they appear here) but I rather like it as the color suits the rest of the piece.
The only change I made was to leave off the bugels that the angels had coming out of their mouths.  They were made of back stitching with 4 cross stitches forming a square and I felt like the piece looked better without them.
The linen color is more true here.  I love the simple border.

I bound off a knitting project on Friday night and if I can get it into a bath of Soak and dried, I'll be showing that to you soon!

May all your stitches be happy ones!
