Quaker Study - Finished and Framed

This is my Carriage House Samplings - Quaker Study - finished and framed.
Not a great photo with all the tabletop reflection at the bottom across the stars.
Used one skein of dmc light and one of dmc dark.
Omitted border, changed 'G', widen 'J', changed colors in top center star.
Changed center stitches in a few stars. Moved up stars below letters 'A' and 'CD' as they seemed a row low on the chart.
I could have added a couple of rows of stars to make the design fit the frame better.
The first time stitching this pattern, and I wanted to stay fairly true to the pattern and colors.
$5 frame from Michaels.
