Nautical Fence - Finished!

Stitched the last X in the sand last night (just before midnight).  The buttons are not attached yet - just laid on top to show placement.  I've loved this pattern since I first laid eyes on it and it was a pleasure to stitch.

I did something different with the sand section on the bottom.  Inspired by one of the members of my stitch group, I stitched it diagonally instead of horizontally.  I think it gives the sand a nice texture (and it made a neat pattern on the back!).

Congrats on the finish! The mermaid's "buttons" crack me up :)

Thanks! The 'buttons' may have been the deciding factor about stitching this one!
