At last, my first April finish

Hello friends.
Yes, it is the first and also my only finish for the month as it is the last day, lol.
I just did what I set out to do, kept working at it to have an April finish...and now I'm so happy (breathing a big sigh of relief:)
 I See Trees of Green
by Heartstring Samplery
14ct. vintage country cream aida
This is fresh from the last stitched X. The needle is still smokin' hot, haha.
Some pics to show you the GAST's dyed/faded/antique look (the shot didn't capture the marbling on the fabric though):

 Oh, almost forgot to mention that I only used one skein of each color (I ordered 2 of each). Guess my guesstimating skills need improvement... or not. I'm pretty sure I'll be using those extra skeins for something else. Do I smell another start? Ooh, I think not, Santa's watching.
 Tomorrow I'll attend to my other WIPs as it is already a new month, have those finished before everything turns to chaos. I'll tell you about it in my next post.

Thanks for visiting. Happy Stitching!
