A Cross Stitch Finish!!!

 I have finished stitching the Memorial Sampler by Midsummer Night Designs. I stitched it on 40 Count Flax. I also used the called for GA Threads. 
 This is me and my brother's names. Trey is really Robert Manly Whitaker III. My dad was a Jr. I did not put the Jr. on the end of my dad's name. My dad went by the nickname PeeWee.
 The names really made some problems for me... I wanted to put PeeWee in there, somewhere... and I didn't want my brother's real name to be longer than mine... lol  So I just put both our go-by names and filled in with flowers on each side. My grandad ( Pawpaw) was Bob, my dad was Peewee, and my brother is Trey.. So you can see they did and do not go by Robert.. lol
I now need to find a frame for it. I have not emptied the closet as of yet, to see if I have a frame..
I have been doing housework today.. boooooo!
Till later....

April, this is beautiful. Hope there's something perfect in the closet. You've made me want to stitch it for my dad, too. Will the chart be going into your Shop site?
