More Leaves

More leaves in the middle and more snowflakes on the edges.  Well over halfway done with this!

About Halfway

Nearly halfway done with this.  Still not the happiest with the brown.

Ride The Longhorn

The patient longhorns even let you pose for photos if you want to ride them.  Each longhorn does this for about an hour a day in the shade with water nearby.  They seem well taken care of.

Embroiderd Shorts

I put these feathers on the outseam of one of my pair of shorts.  Looks good when I wear them.

Here Comes The Herd

The Herd is a herd of longhorns housed in a barn in the Stockyards area of Fort Worth.  They get driven down the street twice a day, about three blocks.  Such a hard life for them.

July Done

One more month done, five more to do.  The year is going quickly!

Getting Ready For The Herd

The road is being cleared for the cattle drive down the street.

Last Time In Fort Worth

This is a visit to the Stockyards from the last time we were in Fort Worth.  I get to go back in two weeks, yay!

More Wings

The wings are filling out very nicely.

Agate Necklace

I've been making a lot of necklaces lately.  This one's also from For The Makers, and it's ready to wear.

Adding Some Grass

I've got some grass popping up on the bottom now, and the lower left corner is stitched!

Briolette Necklace

Working through the For The Makers, I made this pretty sweet necklace.  I also managed to get one more box out of the drawer and into the trash.

Upside Down Flower

I have one needle painted petal of four done!  And the piece is upside down.  Luckily it looks good both ways.

More Leaves

More leaves are appearing.  I have almost all of them on the canvas now, and the central design is almost three quarters done.  It's looking pretty good, I think.  Having had it as a daily project during the last part of June certainly pushed progress along.

Adding Some Colors

In some areas I am already to the outer edges of this design.  It's rather small, but it's colorful and interesting.  I still have a few more sessions to go, but I will get it done soon.

Steampunk Kits

A Russian stitch kit company made these cute kits.  I love them!  They even have evenweave fabric instead of aida.  They're going with me to the US so I can start, and maybe finish, them.

About A Quarter

I am still unsure of the dark brown here and may do it again with a different color.  In the meantime, I'm about a quarter of the way done.

I Made Earrings

I have made earrings for myself from an old For The Makers project.  They camme out pretty elegant.

July Started

This is July after two days of stitching.  Flamingoes this time!

Still On Ears

These gargoyles all have Dumbo ears.  I'm plugging away and across, and at least got a bit more border done too, on the right.

New Patch

I've started a new patch of green in the lower left.  I think it's part of the lower half of the dragon wrapping around the earth. Anyway, it's progress.
