25 Motif challenge 9 of 25 & DC #2

mine measures 7" by 5.5"
I used my size 5 needle and new thread I found at Walmart its DMC traditions 100% mercerized cotton no size was given but it seems to be the size 10

I have added your pictures to the Design Challenge blog. I hope you don't object. I did write to you but I haven't heard back and I'd like folks to see what you have done. I think your design is terrific.
