Happy New Year!!! My First Finish!

Hello everyone!

Well I started the year off right with my first finish of the year!!! ( I finished a UFO )
This one I believe is from around 1992.
Anyway, I had put it down due to running out of floss.
Being that I was new to counted cross stitch and did not know as much as I do now.
Nor did I have the stash to figure out what color I should use.... it laid waiting to be finished.

So now my horsey lover of a daughter has a beautiful carousel horse....
I just wish I could have gotten all the stains out but I did get most of it out.

One down and 19 more finishes to go to reach my goal. Also, One UFO down and hopefully more to go!
