On To NIne

I am trying to get one section done per session.  So far, I'm keeping up.  The last one had a really weird weaving bit.  Still not sure I did it right, but it looks okay and dimensional.

One Turtle

One turtle done of about a dozen.  I'm working this over two on 40 count linen .  He looks cute.

More Apartment Views

While these shacks are not really sanctioned, the people in them have air conditioning and satellite tv.  They are also right below our apartment building.  There's also the view of the port and harbor here, too.

Star On Red

 This is my first temari finished in Angola.  I gave it as a birthday gift last night.  I kind of like the little star in the big one.

Birdie, Birdie

The first little bird is partially filled in, and I think it looks pretty good.  Now is the time for getting the rest of it done.

Apartment Views

We are near the top of our apartment building.  I knew I was acrophobic, and I had hoped to deal with it, but I have been having daily episodes of vertigo and other problems since moving here.  We should be getting a house by the end of January.  In the meantime, I cope and get to take the dog up and down the elevator thrice a day.  Some of the views are pretty, though.

Crafty Project

I brought some of my For The Makers boxes with me when I left Moldova.  Finally, I got to do a project from them.  This is a pinata made from the box, mylar (icky to work with), and tissue paper.  Not too bad.  It's even filled with candy.  Give some decoration to the apartment.
