Wedding Row finished!

Shhh...... It's finished! Don't tell the bride and groom...since it's a surprise gift! LOL!

I decided not to bead the X's and O's, but I stitched them in a Kreinik red metallic. I really love the way it turned out! For stitchers, the specifics are that Bent Creek's Wedding Row sampler is stitched on 28 ct. white Jobelan over one. Colors have been changed to Weeks Mulberry, Gentle Art Sweet Pea, Gentle Art School House Red, and Kreinik Very Fine Braid #4 in red. I altered the alphabet for the couple's names, making it a little more contemporary and clean.

It's off to the framer today! I love it!
