January's Foxy

Looks like I'll finish this on time.  The fox has a body!

From Trish Burr

 I received these in the mail a couple of weeks ago, and I can't wait to start some.  Unfortunately, I didn't bring them with me on this trip.

Beautiful Building

It's not the Scottish National Library, but it's almost next to it.  Lit up for the evening, it looks lovely.

Filling In Columns

The columns are getting filled it.  They are looking substantial now.

A Globe!

This was December's Darby Smart.  It's a color your own globe.  I love it!  Will probably do more than the three colors given, but I need to decide on a theme.

Christmas Maze And Train

The Edinburgh Christmas Market has a children's game area.  It includes this lit up maze and a train.  Looks pretty at night, for sure.

Two Thirds And No More

Right at two-thirds done.  I feel like I am on the back stretch now.

Fireside Floss Sale

I scored these pretty flosses from Fireside's e-sale last month.  

Swings In The Sky

The swings went high into the sky and sometimes stopped.  I would not want to be in one of them!  It was pretty from a distance, though.

Lots Of Dark

I've put a few stitches into the glass, but a lot more into the bottle where you can't see them.

House Of Embroidery Thread

House of Embroidery had a promotion, and I bought all these flosses.  They came the other day, and now I get to figure out how to use them.

Bridge To The Park

The view from the bridge crossing.  We went on over to the park with the Christmas market!

Crazy January #11 - Dragonfly

The kit, with all the materials, came, so I decided to start it!

Patience Pays Off

This kit finally came back in stock at The French Needle last month.  I'd been looking for it.  Yay, it's mine now!

Lunch Place

 This was a little burger place we ended up having lunch at.  Burgers were huge and good, and the surroundings were eye candy.

Crazy January #10 - Fleur De Lis

This was a chapter project that I've started very late.  Better late than never, though!

Dr Who Earrings

Andreas surprised me with new earrings!

JK Rowling

Her hands are some of the ones imprinted in an area just in front of a bookshop in one of the closes.

Crazy January #9 - In A Purple Passion

Some needlepoint started.  So far, it's pretty easy and I've gotten a good chunk done.

New Kit

I wanted to do some more drawn thread, and up popped this kit from Nordic Needle.  Now I need to get my life for the next six months settled so I can get something done!

Being Literal

 An apple tree on the Royal Mile and little bits of things on the way to the church.  Was a pretty walk.

Texan Dragon

Andreas' parents gave us this print of how a dragon would be if it were Texan....

Crazy January #8 - Palpitations

I am working on this now - it's from an old class by mail.  In it, she uses yarn.  Yarn is -not- a good idea.  It breaks.

Leaving The Castle

 It's time to leave the castle and explore some of Edinburgh proper.  These photos are of the outer parking lot area as we leave to walk the Royal Mile.  Oh, and the view from the parking lot...
