Happiness Is.....Finished!

After a lovely afternoon nap, I finished this up today. I love it.

This is Rosewood Manor's "Happiness Is" sampler, stitched on 28-ct. Kiwi Illusions Desert Sand hand-dyed lugana, using HDF silks. It is charted for DMC, and would certainly look lovely that way, too, but I was just dying for an excuse to do an entire piece in silk floss. hehehe I may be hooked now....

I think this would look lovely framed as a sort of companion piece to Drawn Thread's "Valse de Fleurs," the class piece I have from Celebration. Of course, I have to finish that first!
