It's Beading Time!

The cross stitches are all in and I've started beading away!  Yay!

View From The Top

 The village of Cojusna from the top of Chateau Migdal.

Map, Model, And Book

 This map shows Krakow as it was in the middle ages.  The model shows the interior architecture of one of the buildings, and the book is beautifully illustrated.

Almost Hilled

I almost have the hill done.  It's taken a lot longer than I'd hoped.  Once the hill is done, I'll be able to do some specialty stitch bands.  They will go more quickly, I hope.

Chateau Migdal Tour

Chateau Migdal is a newish winery, having been founded in the 1990's.  This means it's modern - no communist legacy.  I went with the Lehtinens, so I could show them one I'd not previously been to either!  It's not far from Chisinau, but is a little hard  to find.  The staff was wonderful, welcoming, and helpful.  I'll show the food and tasting tomorrow.

Find, Models, And Demonstration Areas

This set of photos has a lot of artifacts and models in it.  It's even got some needlework artifacts.  These are still last year's photos.  We have not been back during t his visit so far.

Bordering Along

I almost have the upper border done now.  It's getting filled in pretty quickly.
