Brown Background

More brown all around.  The background on the right is a bit more filled out, but it's hard  to tell.

Sampler And Owl

I don't know why Andreas decided to take a photo of these together outside of them being framed at the same time.  On the right is an owl print he had; the left is the little band sampler I finished earlier this year.

On Time

I am right on time with the May block.  Will definitely have it done by the end of the month.

Stuff In Soroca

It's a sniffer dog!  The customs service of Moldova had several dogs out to pet.  The weather was warm and these dogs are sooo patient.  There was a festival in Soroca  to reopen the fortress.  The place was packed, except no one could get into the fortress because the politicians were hogging it.

Onto The Third Layer

The second leaf has only a layer and a half to go.  Stitching this full sized on 40 count instead of 28 count has made it much more slower going.

Inside The Structure

The eternal flame is for local unknowns who fell in WWII.  There was only one very short campaign in Moldova.  The Soviets had an offensive from Tiraspol to Iasi at the very end of the war.  It's when Moldova was incorporated into the Soviet Union.  The quotes were originally only in Russian; newer ones have been added in Romanian in the past couple of decades.

Colorng It Up

I have been unable to work much on this, but there's a new color on the bird.
