A little Summer

I bought this cute design more than a year ago.  It spoke to me as I think these flowers look like zinnias and I have been planting those in the garden for the past few years.  The blooms are cherry and last awhile cut in a vase.   This cross stitch design is from Stitching with the Housewives, entitled Bloom.  I used DMC floss as referenced in the chart in all but one color- I swapped out 317 for 932.  14 count Aida cloth in chalkboard black used.  I am looking forward to finishing it into a decorative display piece for me tiered tray.
