Still First Roofing

I still have bits and pieces of the first roof to do, but the odds and ends of excess thread are ending up on the second one.

Cow Coozie?

More of what happens when I let Andreas go to Buc-ee's alone ... a cow fur can coozie.  I have no idea what the Kosovars are going to think of us.

All Cottaged Up

My cottage is done, and since this photo was taken, it's been put in its magnet case.  One more thing completed!

Cow Fur Flask

This is what happens when I let Andreas go alone to Buc-ee's.  I end up with a cow fur alcohol flask.  It will go in my cow fur purse to the Marine Ball with me in a couple of weeks.

Purse Project

I've gotten a bit more of this done since it's become a purse project.

Mostly Chemistry

This is the stash I bought at Cabbage Rose.  They had chemistry prints!  I have no idea what I am going to do with them, but it will be something.

Pillow Case Kits

The left kit is to be made for Dawn.  The right one probably won't be made into a pillow.  It was the only place in Cabbage Rose that had the map fabric... so, decision to make!

Back To Wings

More wing extension this time.  There are bits of wing that need more stitches, and they will get them soon.

Flowering Up

I am now working on this daily.  It's time to get this done.  Two little flowers per day, I think.

Elemental Stones

I don't know why chemistry is now associated with Halloween, but I now have a bag of glow in the dark "stones" with chemical elements printed on them.

Furry Deco

Made the mistake of going to the Stockyards with Andreas.  He has fully embraced cow fur now.  We also have two full hides being shipped to Kosovo as I type this.

Looks Like A House

Lots of work on this resulted in most of the cottage being done!

Some More Reflections

I put this in my purse and got a bit more of it done last week.

Collar For Mattie

A new collar for Mattie to wear in Kosovo.

Two Peas

I am back to the peacock, and still doing a lot of brown. I'm also almost done with pages three and four, which is about halfway done.


Okay, so it's only the smell of bluebonnets.  But it's October, and I'll take what I can get.  Andreas found this at Buc-ee's on his way back from visiting his parents.

More Frills

I have passed to the frills on the right side.  Getting to the corner slowly, but getting there.

Jedi Bobblehead

 I went to a Rangers' game back in August to get this bobble head for Andreas.  After all, two of his favorite things - baseball and Star Wars!

October Done

After much frogging and gnashing of teeth, October is done.  I am tired of this piece, but there are only two more months to go.

A Cowgirl Backpack

This is the backpack I will carrying with me when I land in Kosovo.  Found it in the Cavenders/Luskeys in Northside Fort Worth.  I think I might make a statement.

Colorful Flowers

I have flowers taking shape every time I do this.  Two more down.

I Indulged

Turns out I have a lot of afghans to make.  What to do? Shop for yarn.

Almost Roofed.

First side is almost roofed.  I have a lot of the blue done, and the central area is taking shape.  I even started on the left one.

Most Of The Cottage

I have most of the cottage done now.  It's beginning to look a lot like a finished piece.

Found Some

I found some of this to take on to Kosovo.  I like the taste of it, and it's the only flavored whiskey I like outside of honey flavored.  Now six bottles will be going to eastern Europe.

Gimps and Metallics

These are from Thistle Threads - a whole box of new things to look at and use!

Bringing Heart

I've added some hearts now.  It's coming along pretty well.

French Knot Stash

I was looking for some treasure braid, so I went to my local needlepoint shop.  They didn't have it, so I had to order by mail.  I still picked up a few things, though.

Tired Of Ears

More ears, but at least I did some of the left border.

Meal In Taos

When we went to Taos, we ate lunch at The Gorge.  It's a lovely little place right on the square.  I had a french dip sandwich, and Mom had enchiladas and watermelon margaritas.  The food was very good, even if there was too much of it.  After the meal, we visited several shops and the Kit Carson museum.

Looking Good

I think my dragon's looking pretty good.  I worked on both the right and left edges this time.

Compounded Santa Fe

 Mom really wanted to go to The Compound while we were in Santa Fe in Angust, so we went.  I loved the soup, and the onion rings were spot on.  Our main courses weren't bad either.  I'd recommend this place!


More Colors

This time I added colors in all three majors: pink, orange, and green!
