 Chad decided to photobomb my Lady while Andreas was taking the photo. He got a second without the puppy. I think the puppy one is better.

Basket Weaving Kits

When we visited the hobby shop in Budapest, there were a bunch of art supplies, a few embroidery supplies, and basket weaving supplies. So we bought basket weaving kits! Now to find time to make them...

Lunch At Era

Era has fast become consular's favorite restaurant in Peje. With meals like this, it's hard for it not to be. The filet was perfect, the salad fresh and crisp, and the dessert delicious.

Peja Brewery Part 2

This first couple of photos is making the bottles for Sola, a fruit drink. These are the two liter ones. And then the warehouse.

Powering The Flower

The top left corner is done, and I like the way it looks despite the pain of working with this material.

Two Windows

Two of three windows on the right done, plus a good start on the last garden.

Under The Sea

I scored a bunch of floss from Under The Sea.

Another Flower Started

I'm working on the flower on the left now. It's a big undertaking.

Boot Ornament

I don't know why they sent me both colorways on this ornament. Time to start on this.


This has a tree and a roof and even some shutters on the fourth house now.

Peja Brewery, Part 1

This top photo is a wall in Peja's reception room. We talked about the business there, and it was a very comfortable place. The rest is of the factory itself, incuding a photo of my boss and the factory managers. It was a typical modern brewery, with possibly less safety features than you'd see in the US.

Sunflower Ornament

This is a gift for someone. I think the finish came out okay, and it's a bit of summer cheer.

Sword And ...

There are bits of boat and the beginning of  thistle appearing, but all that's recognizable at this point is the sword.

Sushico With Bashkim

Bashkim never visits new restaurants. He will go out occasionally with his family, but not anywhere new. So, when I had to have my fingerprints taken at the Pristina main police station, we went to Sushico for lunch. He liked it. Now he can take his family there to eat. 

Since it was lunch, we had the bento boxes, plus duck buns and wonton soup. The bento boxes are a good deal.

Summer Outdoors Stitchy Box

I have a new stitchy box to open. It'll go in the closet until it's time. I need to find more time for stuff.

To The Bottom

I am so close  to being finished with this. The bottom mazes are almost done, and I am about to start the bottom border.

Jalapeno Farm

Over in Peje, there's a field of jalapenos. In Kosovo. They're real jalapenos, and they're picked and sold and put on the market not only in Kosovo, but exported through North Macedonia to the rest of Europe.
