Parakeet's Date - The Finale

I have been religiously sticking to my 'at least 20 minutes a day' stitching routine on the cross stitch and am happy to say that another of Mum's UFOs is done.

Here is how we left it last week.
And this is the finished piece.
At the moment I am thinking this one is likely to become a cushion. I really enjoyed working with the vibrant yellows and greens and will probably follow this colour scheme through when I make this one up.
Time to raid the box again and pick another UFO........

THe yellowy tone of the green sure adds life/energy to this stitching. You've done a great job. Isn't it amazing how the 15-20 minutes all adds up...
