Finally finished

Yes, my Crabby Taxes is done! Except for the long stitches that go across the 1040 form; I'll wait until all the squares are stitched before adding these. That block of light blue was taxing, let me tell you! See? No penalty accrued, Ranae!!!



Cathey wondered what my new WIP is so I borrowed a photo from Olga's blog. Olga of Olenka's Stitches designed the most beautiful biscornu with wisteria, butterflies and bumblebees. I fell in lo-ove! A quick email, an even quicker reply, an easy PayPal payment and this beauty was mine. I've been looking for a biscornu to stitch and this one is perfect! Olga has more gorgeous pictures on her blog, so go visit. Not my fault, if you cannot resist, fair warning!



We are off to Tulsa today to watch our Talons play so I'll have Rick drop me by the Silver Needle to get the supplies. Hopefully, I'll be able to get a start on this tomorrow! I say, to hell with the housework, anyway!
