Beneath the Sunlit Sky Finished!

I got it finished up last night while listening to The DaVinci Code (I think I may be the last person on earth to read it)! My dh's flight was canceled, so I stayed up way too late again stitching. :) He's on his way home now though. I'll pick him up after the kids get out of school. Anyway, here are some pics of the finished design...
