A finish and new WIP

Earlier this week I finished Chocolate Shoppe by Little House Needleworks as my project for the Cake SAL on the LHN/CCN Yahoo Group. This was done on 18 count Tan Marble aida by Sassy's Fabbys with regular DMC floss. Should fit quite nicely into a 6"x8" frame and make a lovely gift for a special gal I know.
My new work in progress is a chart I've had in my stash for quite a while. While I have a few other projects to complete this one was just calling out to me so I went ahead and started it. This is Wild Roses by Carriage House Samplings. I chose a 20 count Golden Sand lugana and using the DMC recommended. The picture doesn't to justice to how well the threads pop on the fabric.
