Happy Valentine to DH

I have managed to get this finished although my finishing isn't as good as it could be.. but I am not able to do it this afternoon nor evening so it has to do.. Annoyingly I haven't any cording and I haven't time to make any.. so it just had to be sewn and a bow.
The colours are better than this and if you click on it the colours show much truer.  If you know this design you might notice that I have changed the colour of the hanging key to dark rose, it is listed as ecru but it didn't show up on the linen, so hence the change.
I am a lot easier about changing colours these days, where as when I first started cross stitching I had to use the advised colour..
I do like this and will be giving it to DH tomorrow.. he knows there is something coming because this morning I asked to be in the dining room alone! But he hasn't really noticed what I have been stitching all week, so it will be a nice surprise!
Happy Stitching and I hope your Valentine will remember you tomorrow!

If anyone would like this chart please leave a message on this post.
