Purse Project

This was what I was working on on the planes on the trips we've taken in the past month. It's coming along, and it's all random - random fabric, random thread, random pattern. I like it.

November Started

November is a lot of border, but it's started.

Pre Opening At Commandante Marcos

There's a real Mexican restaurant in Pristina now. We went to their preview in July, and it was spectacular. So we try to visit this place at least monthly. It's good to get Mexican food I don't have to cook myself. It tastes as good as it looks.

Big Dinner At Hotel Astoria

We ate at a hotel in Old Town on the beach. Very nice atmosphere, view, and food. The wine was expensive, but the rest was a decent price. Loved the food.

Chris' Going Away Party

Andreas' employee Chris left in June and is now in South Korea. We had a section dinner for him and his family at Renaissance (where else?). Everyone had a good time and farewells were said.

Flag And Ribbon

A bit of flag and a bit of ribbon all done on this.

Old Town Cafe

We walked around the old town part of Budva and stopped in for lunch at this little outdoor bar. They had pretty and tasty canapes. And good mojitos.

Sip N Paint October

My pumpkin pile took a few weird turns. I need to take things like this more slowly despite Andreas waiting for me at home.

Breakfast at Villa Masline

Memorial Day weekend was spent in Budva with Kerry. The hotel we were staying at did breakfast. This was our first one.

Working My Way Up

Still working on the vertical stripe, but it's the fill stitches now. Looking pretty good.

Trip To Office Depot

Andreas goes off to Office Depot; he returns with new pens and sticky note pads for me. I love this man.

Getting More Batty

Totally working on the seventh square now, and it's going pretty well. I've got a few bats to do.

Yay, It's Done

One thing about these surface embroideries is how quickly they work up. I love it. Here, I have Wildwood done and framed. Andreas loves the look of the ladybug, so we're keeping it.

Random Restaurant

There wasn't much choice on the castle hill for food in Budapest. It was a pain. So I started to learn the bus system to remedy that. This was still on the hilltop, but the rest of the meals weren't. Most of the food was very meh.

Ipsy October

My hiatus from ipsy ended and I got my first box from them again. Yay for now doing  the make up bag with the plus! I missed it. Part of the joy of ipsy is the make up bag. The rest was all stuff I'll use, too.

Working On Trees

I have trees growing on the left top. They're coming alive around the garden. So are the bricks of the left hand house.

Crown Of Petals

More petals done on the flower on the left, and, since they're the top ones, they look like a crown. It's getting done slowly.

First Dinner in Budapest

After moving the embassy, Andreas had a conference to go to in Budapest. I went along with him, as I hadn't seen much of my husband for months. We stayed at the Hilton by the palace. Nice place, but the food for dinner was pretty meh with limited choices. We ate with one of Andreas' friends and had what is laid out in front of us here at the bottom. The first photos, up through the bread, were from one of the few restaurants on the hill open for lunch on a Sunday. The food was totally overpriced, The goulash as flavorful but low on meat and high on potatoes. The cucumber salad was good. So was the bread. But a disappointing first food day.
