I received this chart as a freebie a number of years ago when I placed an order for Sunshine and Sunflowers from Janlynn. It has been languishing in my stash basket since then. I asked my youngest son, Michael if he would like me to stitch it for him. “Yes,” he says. With a stitch count of 100W x 295H I knew it might be a fairly large size. Rather than use 14 ct which was what was recommended, I decided to use 16 ct antique white Aida which I ordered from my favorite source 123Stitch.com. The finished size of just the design area would be 6 1/4” by 18 1/2”
Little did I realize how many shades of gray were used. Ten shades for just the top left part of his ear!! But it is going to be beautiful when finished.
Started stitching: Jan 6, 2014.
I’ve gotten a lot more stitched since I last posted my progress.

I put the final stitches in last night. Or at least I thought they were the final stitches. After taking the picture, I realized that I forgot the back stitching on the last wolf’s ear. Once it dries, I’ll do that then it will be ready for framing. My son will be very happy to have it hanging in his room.
February 10, 2015 – Finished and framed. Right now it is only pinned to the foam core. I still need to lace it and add the spacers and glass.
The frame I used is from Graphic Dimensions – EWC8 Black Frame EconoWood Classics Collection.
