First finish for this year is a design I've called "Fruit Basket."  I don't know the title nor do I know the name of who designed it.  I filled in the center box with my favorite scripture - "O taste and see the Lord is good; blessed is the man that trusteth in Him." Psalms 34:8  I had it framed in a green frame and it hangs in my kitchen.  This design was one of the very first that I did years ago when I first started doing counted cross stitch.  I gifted the first one I did.
