About To Bead

The cross stitches are all completed and it's time to begin beading.  True progress!

Fire Planeted

Andreas got another science fiction poster framed; this one is from the Firefly universe.

Mock Ups And Models

The black tube is part of a submarine mock up.  The rest are models.  The Nimitz museum covers the whole of the war in the Pacific and does it through interactive stuff.

Zigging And Zagging

Some progress, but not much, as I fill in all the zigzags.

Almost All Around

Mainly this was filling in background again, but I did manage to get the dark blue border almost all the way around.

Laura Perrin Diamond Framed

I love how MolDeco did the framing on this.  It doesn't show up well in the photo, but there are two colors of suede mats surrounding the piece - blue and green.  I think it turned out neat, and the bright orange color wasn't much of a challenge for them.

Nimitz Museum - Fredericksburg, Texas

Andreas is cleaning out his photo processing queue, so you're seeing a lot of old photos.  These are from December 2013 when we went on home leave.  We spent some time in Fredericksburg; one of the interesting things there is the Nimitz Museum.  These shots are of the outside in back.  The front looks like the hotel the Nimitz family ran at the turn of the 20th century.  There is a Japanese garden, and there are also some World War II vintage amphibious troop carriers and a few small boats.
