Miniature needlework finish!!!

Finally, the Adam & Eve Sampler from Annelle Ferguson's book is finished and ready for blocking and framing. Stitched with 1 strand of DMC cotton threads on 40 count silk gauze, this sampler measures 1.5 inches across by 2 inches vertically. Congratulations to me!
BTW this isn't cross stitched, its needlepoint...I prefer cross stitching and future samplers *will* be cross stitched, but I *had* to try my hand at this.
As usual, I forgot to use an object for scale...but the picture was taken on handrail of the deck, so that should give an idea of size/scale.
