so one night hubby and i were watching tv with one of our friends and the show that we were watching had a man driving around in a tank prompting our friend to tell me "hey you're crafty, I bet you could build me a tank for my birthday" i dont know about any of you but i dont have spare tank parts laying around my apartment Smiley i went online and found a tank coloring page and used that to "build" this tank, i used cheapo prism verigated green floss in 6 and 3 strands, split stitch on an old pillowcase, i love it and i hope he and you do too Smiley




his birthday is tomorrow and i will be giving it to him tomorrow night Smiley

He'd be crazy not to love it!

It turned out great and I really like the look that the verigated floss gives it.

Remember the time he ate my goldfish and you lied to me and said I never had a goldfish? Then why'd I have the bowl Bart?

Why.

Did I Have.

The Bowl??

Human rights are for EVERYONE.  Did you know that Aung San Suu Kyi had been released from house arrest in Burma? Many other prisoners of conscience are still being detained.  Please research this topic... Amnesty International needs your help.

Very nice stitching.  Hmmm, i guess coloring book pages do make good patterns.  I'm glad your friend liked it.

Good Job!!!
