Grinding Through

I feel like I am grinding through these last ten rows of confetti stitches in the picture part.  It -is- coming along; it just looks like it's not.

Last Of France

This beautiful church is currently being rebuilt after extensive damage in the wars.  It's the church for the women's abby, and is closed to the public.

Beginning The Bottle

I have now started the bottle on this piece from Luca-S.  Not a fan at all of aida, but I didn't have any black linen when I started it.  Should be a fairly quick stitch.

Around The Circle

These are the buildings around the circle with the St. Etienne.  They include city hall (St. Etienne), the court, and the old women's abbey, which is in ruins but being rebuilt.

Bits Of Branches

Well, I have more bits of branches done.  Another blossom is finished, too.  Just catching up on all these shades of brown.  Will be happy to get off of background soon.

More Stained Glass

These are all windows on the sides of St. Etienne.  They look much older than they are.

Third In A Week Done

This is the third of the three finishes I made last week.  It's going to be made into an ornament.  I think it'll look good.

Down The Nave

 THese photos show the light down the main aisle of the church.  Plus some buttresses and a clock!

The Second Tier

I am about half way across the second tier of stuff, with the whole first tier done.  This is coming along nicely, I think.  I've got one stitchalong done; it's time to get the second done.

I Don't Trust The Cherubim

This is the choir stall of the abbey St. Etienne in Caen.  The cherubs look downright evil. some of  them!  I don't think I'd trust myself sitting by them for a long, boring mass.

Blackwork's Done!

I finished three things last week, go me!  This was one of them.  I have no idea what I am going to do with it now, but it's off my crazy January list and completed.  I really should have used a different thread color.  Lots of it looks faded out.

In The Sanctuary

The city of Caen never decommissioned the church that sits in the abbey, so it's still a sanctuary.  The place has been rebuilt after World War II and looks good.  Lots of pretty stained class and much light for the architecture.
