More pictures and a finish

First, a little more about my finish- it's a Prairie Schooler as I mentioned before.. I stitched it on MCG Textiles linen from Michael's. I didn't use the recommended DMC threads- here is what I used- all GAST- Oatmeal, Forest Glade, Maple Syrup, Mulberry, Bittersweet, and Soot. PS had the hat, mouth, and pipe all the same color, but I changed the pipe to brown.

Now for some pics from the museum yesterday, and hopefully a video if I can figure out how to put it on here.

Inside the butterfly sanctuary! It's not the best video, but it gives you an idea of how many were flying around! They were landing on us too- it was so neat! It's easier to see them if you expand the video to full screen. Enjoy!
