Roses Theme MA for Anastasia of Kentucky

Somehow I mixed up the dates of the MA exchanges and I thought this MA was due last month, instead of end of July. I think my exchange partner was surprise to recieve it early. Moreso, I started to think it gone MIA (missing-in-action)... but thank goodness it arrived on its destination safely as it was mailed AS IS.
House Theme MA for Anastasia of Kentucky
Main Motif: Whimzi Rose of Just Nan
The main design is a freebie design from Just Nan while the dainty roses are my own. This is the first time I stitched on 18 count fabric, and I had to used pearl cotton instead of stranded floss. I thought of finishing it a little different so I added ribbon trimmings on the flap for extra fling. The inside lip was also embellished with cluny lace. It's a quick project but I had fun finishing it.
I hope you like your new MA Anastasia. Enjoy!

You are not alone Lody, I made similar mixedup at NNC too last year. Nice blue, matched the fabric.
