Beautiful Counted Work

I found this beautiful table runner at the market in Budapest.  It's all hand stitched, with both  cross stitch and pulled work.  I love it.

Crazy January Start #16: Rico Design Tablecloth

Last time we were in Germany I bought this at the Karstadt.  It was on sale and looked pretty.  Now I've started it.  It's a square tablecloth with a Christmas motif.

Sick Of Red

I am so sick of going back and forth with the red!  At least I only have about twelve more rows of it.

Faire Food

The Christmas fairs had a variety of food - more so than other towns we've been to.  I stuck to a traditional sausage while Andreas tried goulash in a bread bowl.

Pizza Place On Eroilor

Pizza 4 Amici is in the basement of a building on Blvd. Eroilor, and they make good mulled wine!  Their food is also very good.  I had the wine to warm me up.  Andreas had a banana milkshake.  No comment on the reason.  We, as usual, ordered too much food.  My chicken soup - was not zeama.  I am so going to miss zeama when we move to Luanda in the autumn.  Andreas had a cold plate and pasta and I had veggie pizza. All were very good and very filling.  The service was nice too!  The waitress checked on us every so often and told us that things would take a bit.

Crazy January Start #15: Counted Square

When this is done, it'll be perfect for a scissors fob.  I found it on Pinterest and decided I needed a few easy projects this year.  It's already about a third of the way done.

Sky And Stucco

Worked on the sky and stucco this time.  I am so very close to being finished with the big house.
