Another small finish and some progress

Last Monday I had a medical appointment in Rochester, NY, and after I was done with that, I Googled "cross stitch shops near me."  :D  And wouldn't you know it, I was only 5 minutes away from Golden Thread Needlearts!  They don't have a website that I can share.  But I did spend a happy hour wandering around, and left with a few items.  One of them was Bent Creek's "Cozy" - and here it is, completely finished.
I substituted for just about every color, I think.  And the finish is in an old coaster that I found in a bin of cast-off things here at the college last summer when people were cleaning out their offices.  (I have 3 more, so you might see more smalls finished this way!)

And here is an update on "Summer Sunset."
(Excuse the crummy indoor phone photo.)  I love this, although it is kind of slow going with all the color changes.
