Crab, FOs & Purple Yarn

Since I had to get the kids early from school, we decided on the b-day dinner to instead be the b-day lunch. So I decided to go to Ruby Tuesday. I had the Jimmy Jax Crabcake burger(minus the horseradish sauce). It was good. I recommend it if you haven't tried it.

I got a package in the mail. It was this:



Yummy purple yarn. I helped Heather de-stash. Thank you! I have some ideas for this, but maybe I will get some more when I get to spend my gift card.

And last, but not least. I finished the corset! And I even put it on and took a pic.





Sorry for the roll on the back. I was trying to hurry and didn't have it pulled on quite straight. While I was doing this, someone was trying to be sneaky.



She came out from behind me while the picture was being snapped. She is such a ham when she sees the camera.

And as is tradition with every finish, the happy dance. Cue Charlie Brown theme.

What a FANTASTIC corset top! I love it and can't wait to cast mine on, although I fear that the "rolls" in mine will all be me *g*
