Inner Outline Done

All the inner border's done, yay, and it's time to start filling things in again.

Stuck In The Middle

When you're in the middle of a project, especially a big one, it's hard to see progress.  I promise tehre was a lot of filling in going on.

Lunch At A Pub

 We went to the mall again on our last full day and had lunch.  This pub was so much more quiet at lunch time!  We had drinks and appetizers and over ordered again.  Andreas couldn't resist the idea of mac and cheese fries.  I had popcorn chicken, which was a meal in itself.  My mushroom burger had too much spice, but the onion rings were good.  Andreas had chicken lollipops and a chicken sandwich.  By this time, we were missing beef.

Seem To Be Mired

I seem to be mired in little bits of leaves, little bits of petals, and not much progress.

New Daily

This is becoming my new daily project as I start working on getting more things done.  It certainly helps that I am taking two weeks off, and soon I won't be working at all.

Over Ordering At Pali Bhavan

 It was our penultimate night in town and Andreas still hadn't gone to Pali Bhavan, so I took him.  We ordered way too much food because we wanted to taste so many different things.  They were all very good.  I especially liked the stuffed mushrooms.  Everything was spicy without going over the edge to "so hot you can't taste what it is."  The decor is steampunky, too!

Last Celini Dinner

We both decided to have soup on our last night at the Italian restaurant.  My mushroom soup was good, if a bit oily.  Andreas liked his tomato.  My pizza was also up to standard, and Andreas liked his duck breast.

Sparkly Nails

Last time for getting nails done in India.  I miss being about to go somewhere competent where they care and pay attention - and speak English.

Coming To The Point

All the swirls are coming toward the point now.  Time to get cracking on getting done.

Aroma Of Summer

Started this for Stitch Maynia, just that far behind on photos.  It's going to be a butterfly and some strawberries.  Time to get stitching.

Another Celini Dinner

Another night with a too-spicy too-seafoody selection in the Hyatt Club, so off we went to Celini.  Pizza and Timeline were on the menu.

Dinner At Celini

We ate at the Italian restaurant in the Grand Hyatt - I was on per diem, why not?  The food wasn't spectacular, but it was good - and it wasn't spiced like the other Indian food!  We were given a nice loaf of bread, shared an appetizer plate, and Andreas had pizza.  I had chicken with capers.  We also played a simple game while we were eating.  The waiters were amused.

Wintry Mix

On this start, I got the center done and little else.  It's a small design, though, so it should go quickly.

Berries And Leaves

I've got a bunch of berries mostly done, and the leaves are coming along.

Night View

At the area you wait for Ubers and taxis at the Phoenix Market mall, there's a fountain and sculpture.  Here's how it's lit at night.

Craft Cafe

We at lunch at the Phoenix Market Mall the first Saturday Andreas was in town.  So we did some mall bopping and ended up at Craft Cafe.  It advertises itself as a European bistro.  When we went, they were not crowded.  The food was good, even though it was more heavily spiced than I would like.  They also made a decent caprioska.

Little Lattices

Made some little lattices on the right as I continue on the third side.

Wheat Trident

I am stitching this trident because I think it's important to keep Ukraine's struggle against the Russian occupation of Crimean, Donetsk, and Luhansk in the spotlight.  Plus, it's a really neat and pretty design.


 We bought five rugs in Mumbai.  They are currently being shipped to the US for us at home leave.  We'll take them with us to Kosovo.  They're beautiful hand knotted lambswool.  Some of them are pictured in these photos.

Mumbai Street Food

All these little stalls are open to the street in certain areas of Mumbai.  They serve all kinds of spicy or sweet foods.
