I am putting this away for a bit because I'm working on too many large projects at the moment. I hope to pick it up again in a couple of months. For now, I've got a good start and have learned a bit from working on it.
We went to Tblisi restaurant with a large group of people in January. Because we were a large group, we did a pre-ordered group menu. The fresh everything was really good, and they have one of the best grilled meat bargains around.
I started back up on Snowfall. It's kind of slow going because paper is harder to cross stitch on than linen. Ah well - it's time to get it done. I do want to complete a bunch of small projects before we move. That way I'll have fewer WIP's sitting at the dock in Luanda or Brussels for months.
Had a group lunch at Nobil Hotel on Martin Luther King Day. It was a good experience, and it's still nearly unbelievable that you can get food of this quality plus a drink for 150 lei (around $9). This special is only on weekdays at lunch, but it's still spectacular.
