Angolan Independence Night Fireworks

Angola celebrated its independence day on November 11, the same as our Veteran's Day.  That means we get one less holiday off because of the overlap.  On the other hand, it was the fortieth anniversary of independence, so they put on a very nice fireworks show we could watch from the apartment.

One Birdie Done

One birdie is all done and I've got some other bits started too.  The good thing about bayeux stitch is it goes fast.

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.
