Letter B fairy finish!!

Yay! Another Mira finish! I put the very last of the beads in just moments ago. There are places where I just had to make do as I counted and recounted and yet it wasn't correct. While I do not mind the wholesale ripping out of DMC multiple times, Crescent Colours I do!

And on a sad note, Robin William died yesterday in an apparent suicide. I never knew the man personally, but he brought me so much joy with his truly magical talent. Genie of the Lamp from Aladdin was a favorite, but it was his lightening fast improv that was the best. The bit from Inside the Actor's Studio is just sheer comedy gold. According to legend, he was there for 5 hours!



Well, I best be off. Time to get some tea and clean up the detritus so I may spend time with Ms. Ana :)! Hope everyone is having a great week! :)
