  16. Fabulous! This design didn't catch my eye at the OLNS, but seeing yours completed... WOW! I think I may have to order this one, too. You always have such good taste when choosing what you stitch. I've finally got my blog up and running, if you want to take a look. I still need to buy a fresh battery for my camera so I can take some WIP pics. I've posted a couple of times already, including some pics of my two sons. Happy Stitching!

    What can you stitch for a boy's room? (grin)
