Winter Snowflakes Done

I'm done with the chapter stitchalong.  Now to make it into a small ornament.

Stitchy Box Came

Some of my favorite colors in this box.

Baby Buttons

I have little buttons and the inside of the large flower.  It's now in my rotation, so it's time to get things done.

Bombed Out Police Station

This is the site the city view photos were taken from.  As you can see, it is totally rundown and in need of the mercy of the wrecking ball.  One piece of graffiti I found interesting was the bit of conflict from Moldova - "Moldova is Romania."  Very odd to see that in the Balkans!  You'd think the Balkans would have enough of their own problems.

Sarajevo From The Hills

This is the view from one of the mortar sites above Sarajevo.  As you can see, it's perfect for hitting any part of the city. The site itself is a former police station.  At one point it was bombed, and the remains are pretty pathetic.

Stitchalong Supplies

I got this from Lakeside Linens in aid of two stitchalongs.  Unfortunately, I've been too busy with the Linen and Threads sampler to start either.

Still Too Brown

I got more brown done on the left.  Brown is too much in this piece!  But I did get a little bit of purple done, too.

Bit More Blue

I have gotten more blue done here.  It's coming to be a bit in need of some green.

December Tea

I now have more tea to drink.

Man's Done

I have the guy done and that means I'm more than halfway across the way.  Maybe I'll be close to done by the end of the month.

Sarajevo Brewery

We ate lunch at the Sarajevo brewery after taking a tour of their little one room museum.  The brewery has been in existence since the mid 1800's.  Inside, it has a very Victorian vibe.

Ornaments From Vienna

Lots and lots of laser cut wooden ornaments in the Christmas markets.  I chose these three.

Working On The Wings

Bits more of the wings are done, and I have some blue belly added too.

Inside The Church

 The windows are all new, as are the mosaics, since the war.  Some are quite pretty.

Dark Reds

I used some darker colors this time in between the two flowers.  Progress is slow again.

Over Halfway

Yay, I am now over halfway done with this and still love the look of it.

Christmas Market Necklace Find

Found this at the Rathaus Christmas market and brought it home.  I like the drop necklaces.

Church And School

This Catholic church was used as a place of refuge for residents of Sarajevo during the siege.  It was built in the late nineteenth century and survived.  Next post of Sarajevo will be of the inside of the church.  They had to redo all the windows because of bomb blasts.
