NOT SO BAD ... I LOVE IT ...

WHEEW...For me this is an accomplishment as I thought the border would take me forever.  
Actually, it went pleasantly faster than anticipated.
It is not pressed, nor the side seams sewn in place, but, besides the final finishing touches 
my X-stitchin' on this is DONE. 
YUP, it will be framed.
My only regret is that the flowers and green bird on the bottom fade into the linen...would have preferred them to be brighter ... BUT 
... that was not a change to be made as it is a copy of an original museum sampler.  
Of course, all my unintentional flaws make it mine.
None the less ...  
I LOVE IT!
Happy 4th of July everyone...
Remember, this is the

Beautiful! I admire anyone with the patience to do cross stitch...as I can't seem to settle down for things that are so exacting, like this, or knitting. You've done a wonderful job!
