Stag Sampler finished!

I finished this over the weekend!  I love it.  I'm not usually a fan of the reproduction-style samplers, but the colors in this one just drew me in.  Plus, the stag at the top seemed faintly "medieval" to me...perhaps it reminded me of the "Lady and the Unicorn" tapestries?  (Although I must admit, the missing letters in the alphabet DO make me twitch a little.  But I couldn't find a way to modify it, so I guess I'll just have to pretend it was stitched in the 17th century...)
