Half A Tree

I have half a holiday tree done.  This was the stitchalong project for the July general meeting of CyberStitchers.

Greening Gargoyles

I am still on the ears of the gargoyles, but they're growing and greening up.

Leopard


It's a leopard! Great photo by Andreas.

Working On Orange

The green leaves on the right had to be ripped out because they didn't line up.  On the other hand, I have some orange flower done.

Prey And Predator

Andreas went to Namibia with our Marine son in June.  Here are some of the photos.  The lion ones below are excellent.

Almost Second

Needlepainting is a lot of work and takes up quite a bit of thread!  I almost have the second petal of four done, though.  It'd help if I used more than one strand of floss at a time...

Mixing It Up

I have different colors coming together on this small piece.

Jail Time

One of our friends had never been to Fort Worth before.  She was impressed and had to try everything!

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!
