See The Flakes?

Thankfully, there's a lot more contrast in person. At least three snowflakes are complete in this photo.

Greek Keys?

Working on a pattern similar to Greek keys now. Almost done with it, too.

Sew And So

I had been subscribing to this as a digital pattern, but, when Sew and So underwent a change of ownership, they didn't want to mess up. So they sent everyone in their stitchalongs hard copies of everything at no cost.


One way for a restaurant to tell you there's no seating available...

Take Good Care Done

This is now done. I need to mount it in a hoop and send it to its new home.

Yellow And More Yellow

After a bunch of frogging, the fourth house is well started. It's very yellow, so not showing up well in the photo.

Ma Bell

One more bell started. Actually, two. Once I round this corner, I'll be on the downhill.

Gold Star

I want to start this star, but I haven't had enough time in the past few days to put some stitches into anything. I am disappoint. Today is going to be no different.

I Saw A Sign

Saying what to do in case of animal attack or getting into an enclosure... in picures.

Frozen Pond Done

I substituted the pearl for what was supposed to be in the middle. I still hate the braided edging, but the rest was a pretty fun stitch.


The whole first line done and on to finish getting it all done.

Fifth is done and the sixth is properly started.

StitchyBox Spring

This was a pretty good box. I'll probably make both patterns eventually.

More Of The Zoo

Several mechanical bits around the zoo, plus some animals. Andreas liked the wolves.

New Motif

New motif on the right. It's a kind of squiggle design. Only one stripe of it, so it should go fairly quickly.


More red bits this time, working on the maze. Close to the ends of the middle mazes.

Extra Fabric

Dyeing for Cross Stitch had a small sale, and I took advantage. I knew I was going to start Ink Circles'  MAP project. Of these two pieces, Andreas chose the green. We'll see how it goes.

On The Way To The Zoo

We all went to the zoo, and here are some photos from our walk to it from the tram. Pretty canals. Cloudy day.

Working Around And Around

This has become my daily stitch for a bit, which means it's getting close to completion! This has been pretty relaxing up to now, but I don't like this encroaching braid thing - either doing it or the look of it.

A Little Color

The stitching's not all gray because I was able to add a color this time, and get the width of the piece done. Now to go down a bit and color more in.

Looks Crooked

Finished up the inside of square five and working on the outline. I promise it's a square and not a rhombus. It just looks skewed.
