Crabby December Bills

This big block of blue was such a stumbling block for me. It took me forever to gather enough mojo to get it finished. Once the blue was done the rest went zippety-split even the back-stitching and the personalization. I really wanted to do my "real" signature on the check but as it's a swirly scribble no one would know what it was! I settled for the scripted name instead. The idea for this comes from none other than our own Missy Ann who stitched Crabby last year. Missy, where are you? It's been weeks, girl!

Now that I've had this mini happy dance, I'm gearing up for the major all-nighter, party 'till you drop, hoop-la! I should have a final Crabby All Year "the big reveal" post for you before the end of the year. OMG ...that's in three days! I'd better get busy!

Thank you for visiting my blog today!

Hi Sharon,
Thank you for your Christmas greetings on my blog, and I'm pleased to read your Christmas was nice despite the weather conditions. I still think the snow looks pretty! But I don't have to live with it, so I guess that's like Americans wishing they could have our sunshine and hot days. You might not if you were here!
Best wishes for a lovely stitchy new Year!
