A Happy Dance!

I knew if I set my mind to it I should be able to finish stitching my gift, and its done! With only an hour to spare before bedtime. I haven't quite decided how I'm going to finish this yet. Either as a wall hanging (like I did Christin's Christmas present), a flat fold, framed, or a cube-it.

Macdonald Maple Leaf
cLynne Nicoletti
Stitched on 28ct mystery evenweave
Stitched with DMC cotton

Next on my list of stitching to do's is squares for Fair and Square. Its too late tonight, but tomorrow night I'll pick out what I'm going to stitch for my partner and get started. I'm notorious for being a little late to mail things out so I am trying harder to be more on time.
