Three Fish Done

I added the cap to the middle jellyfish!  That means I've got three done, yay!  It looks like I won't finish this here, but I'll get it done in Texas.  Who knows?  I might even get it done here after all the packing's done and there's not much to do for a week.

Still at the Beach - Punta del Este - March 2011

Just people we saw that Andreas took pictures of.  The beach is Punta Brava on the east side of Punta del Este, and yes, the water is that blue and the sand that pretty.

Start to Finish in Two Days

Sometimes you just need a break from what you're doing, and for me, that time was last week.  I needed some instant gratification.  This piece did it.  It's one of Nordic Needle's geometrics, and they provided the graph, pearl cotton and canvas.  Two days in the middle of other things, and it was done.  I'm not going to have time to make it into something before I move, but that's okay.  I'll get to that later.

Punta Brava - Punta del Este

Beautiful white beaches with even a crowd on a non-holiday week after the season has ended.  It was still warm, though the water was cold.

All the verticals are laid for couching; now to do the horizontals.

On the Beach - Punta del Este

Jelly fish on the beach... Punta del Este had a real bad invasion this summer, and for a while you couldn't walk on the beach without seeing one.  By the time we got there in March, most were gone.
And here are some people frolicking in the water, even though it's chilly.  The air was warm, at least, and it was a beautiful day.

Purple and Pink on White

 On this ball, I used Weeks Dye Works pearl cotton for the wraps (purple) and Leah's overdyed pearl cotton for the triangles.  I think it came out pretty well.

On to the Beach - Punta del Este

A few things to buy at the beach, then some surfers, and finally some bits of beach.  The last bit includes my son Sean.  These are still from his visit in March.

One More Stitchalong

Bad me, another start.  This is a quick little stitchalong from Sticklounge called Sommerherz.  I, of course, switched out all the colors.

Punta del Este in a Day

When Sean was here in March, we took him to Punta del Este, THE beach resort of Uruguay.  It was a very nice day...

Anyway, first part of the tour was Punta Ballena, just on the west side of town.  Here's the most famous house on it, and the rest of the photos were taken from the point.
