A wish granted for Leena - I hope!

I just saw on Leena's Blog that she has returned from her vacation and her Make a Wish was waiting for her upon her arrival. Leena wished for any design and any finish incorporating a La-D-Da Design. This is what I stitched and finished for her:



Designer: La-D-Da
Design: Tiny Sampler Freebie
Fabric: 28 ct. evenweave (tea/coffee stained by me)
Fibers: DMC my own colors
Finished as: Stitcher's Box
Enjoy Leena! I had a good time thinking about, stitching and finishing this for you ;)
I'm not a bit chatty today....so....I guess that's all for today! I added some new songs to my playlist so am enjoying "cruising" the internet listening to "my tunes". Off to stitch some more on my Halloween RR....geez! I hope it gets done soon...IT IS SO CLOSE!
Until next time stitch with smiles ;))))))
