A small happy dance

I started this last weekend and finished it today. It is a Sampler Girl design that I stitched using my own colour choices of DMC that I had on hand, from the Jan/Feb issue of Just CrossStitch. I have folded the edges back to show you what it will look like once it is finished into a small pillow. This was a quick fun stitch...just the thing to take to work with me to get a few stitches in at lunch time.

Keep stitching ladies!

The fabric is by R&R reproductions joann...it was a remnant, and I don`t remember what it was called. The blue for the letters was one strand of the DMC blue varigated and one strand of a turquoisy blue...it isn`t labeled, and I don`t remember the number.
