I had hoped to have my Taxes finished today. Yes, I'm aware the tax mailing deadline is tonight...I'm not talking IRS taxes but Crabby Taxes! (hee hee) My IRS taxes were finished the day after we got all our forms in the mail w-aaay back in January. Since I wasn't able to post an April finish yet, I thought at least I'd show you where I'm at. And offer a little stitching tip since this piece is such a good example.
When there is a large area to fill in one color you should always vary the ends of your rows as I have done in the photo above. If you end each row in a straight line down there will be a weird line visible in your finished block. The varied rows hide the stopping/starting places. When I was a beginner stitcher, I once threw away a half-completed project because it showed so badly!

Angela (read my mind and) invited me to her new Lizzie Kate Exchange blog. I'd been itching for an exchange so I've already joined the first round. This will be a fun one! Why don't you join us?
Thank you for visiting my blog today!
