Iris Sampler finished

I finished this up last week. Not sure what to do with it now, but it is done!

Iris Sampler by Sheepish Designs
in Cross Stitch & Country Crafts (Sept/Oct 1990)

stitched on 32-ct. bay rum jobelan, some hand-dyed flosses substituted for DMC and minor chart changes to date and alphabet

I've been feeling the urge to do some finishing, so that kept me busy this past weekend. I got the little Floss Box Halloween pattern I stitched up last year mostly ornamentified, and picked fabrics for a few pillows. Plus I've got my snowman ornament exchange to work on, and few other projects are calling from the WIP bin...there's never enough time!
