On The Green

I am getting more green filling done, and most of the outline of these two lobes is done.  Definite progress.

Fiberlicious Stash

I have plans for the fabric and the matching thread.  It's going to become whitework.  Other than that, no plans yet.

Bits Of Sticks

The border is coming along; the left even has some twigs now.  It's getting there, slowly.

A Good Start

I've got a good start on August now.  It's phoenixes.  Looks like I'll be done stitching in another few days.

It's Been A While

... since I bought fabric.  So when I gave in and bought some, it was quite a bit.  But, chemistry and space and Dr. Who!

Half A Crown

The bird now has half its crown!

Second Corner

The second corner is just about done, and the cup is taking more shape.

Ulpiana - Baptistry And Cathedral

This area of the site is only two buildings - a cathedral and a baptistry.  The cathedral is about as big as the whole necropolis.

More Pop Art

As I get more of the brick stitches done, it looks more and more pop art like again.

Ulpiana Church

This area is the church and temple.  Still some very good views and a very good reconstruction of the layout.

Sky Is Falling

I'm just about done with the sky and will get to start other colors very soon.

Ulpiana Countryside

Ulpiana is in the middle of some farm fields and orchards.  These photos show how close  they are to each other.

First Skull

The first skull is completely visible now.  

Lots Of Satin Stitch

This piece is mainly satin stitch and stem stitch.  I'm almost done with the first bell.

Ulpiana North Gate

This area is the northern gate of the city itself.  The road into the city is very, very narrow!

Blue-ing The Way

I have added more blue to the sides.  The middle "gates" are taking shape now.  The middle maze pieces are coming along a bit, too.

One Headfeather Done

Out of four headfeathers, I now have one done.  Progress is progress, and this is getting worked on now instead of being shoved in a drawer.

More Necropolis - Ulpiana

This tombstone is very well done, considering Ulpiana was not a truly major city.  It did have the designation municipia, but was merely yet another town on the trade route between the Adriatic and Constantinople.  Still, a lot of the workmanship and sheer effort put into things is impressive.

Coffee Cup

It doesn't look much like a coffee cup yet, but there is one there.

Bits Of Flowers

Nothing big finished this time, but bits and pieces of several flowers completed.  There's one big flower cluster on the left that I will tackle next.
