Turning Over

Okay, so I am weird.  I have coveted a crepe turner for years.  This December, I bought this nice wooden one at the Cluj Christmas market.  It's so smooth and pretty!

Temari For Elsie

Elsie and I have had an exchange going for over a year, but it's finally done!  She sent me a lovely temari that you will see in a day or two and I sent her this large kiku thing.  The colors cheered me up as i stitched it, so I hope they cheer her up whenever she looks at it, too!

Crazy January Start #18: Mug Shot

This piece is a kit.  I hated the white aida, so I ended up using my own linen.  It's a stack of several coffee cups with different patterns, so it won't be boring.

Covered Market In Budapest

This is the view from the second story o the covered market in Budapest.  It's huge.  It's also a great place to get lost, though some booths are geared toward tourists, with commensurate prices.

Crazy January Start #18: Mug Shot

I just had to change out the white aida for something else and only got a few stitches in.  I have been so very busy and very tired lately that my stitching's suffered.

Tree Sampler Framed

I have had this sampler done for at least three years, and, knowing we're going to move, we're taking a lot of things to MolDeco to get framed.  This was one of them.  I think they did an awesome job!  The framing makes this blah sampler stunning.


Just about all the work this time was done to the right of the peacock, working on the background.  At least some of it is getting done.
