MFC May Biscornu Finish

I made it to the craft store yesterday on the hunt for some suitable buttons to finish off my biscornu for the Monthly Finishing Challenge this month. I found the perfect buttons and got them stitched on last night before bed. There are few things more satisfying than finishing up a stitching project :)

Froggie Biscornu by Casey Buonaugurio
Freebie chart found here.
Fabric: 25 count Cream Lugana
Thread: Recommended DMC
Stitched 5/7/08 - 5/14/08
Finished as a biscornu 5/15/08

I love how this turned out! This is the only acceptable way frogs and stitching should ever mingle as far as I'm concerned!

I got a start on one of the PS 12 Days of Christmas blocks yesterday. I was going to do the 2nd but quickly realized I didn't inspect the chart closely enough and shouldn't have stitched a solid border. So it quickly turned into the 3rd block. With any luck I'll get these blocks churned out quickly so I can meet my May goals. But no guarantees since my sister comes into town tonight.

Thanks for reading and for you sweet comments!
