Full Cannon

The cannon is complete now, and working on filling in the hill behind.

Sea Star Done

My needlepoint piece is done, yay! Another finish on the pile. I seem to be able to do about one a week.

For The Dogs

These were the contents of my dog stitchy box, which I finished opening last week. More tools than usual. And the chart on the left will be made for my dog sitter.

Mexican Dinner

After lunch at Hotel Arxhena for work, we went out to Commandante Marcos for dinner. I miss those days, even if they were called January. Commandante Marcos was as good as always and even managed to heat up the nacho cheese.

La Vie Est Belle - Work From Home #5

Another one of the COVID freebies to get done. Now it's started.

Back To The Dress Again

More dress this time. I am slowly creeping up to the top. Emphasis on slowly.

Cozyblue Flood

When things shut down, I asked a bunch of my subscription boxes to hold my stuff. I'd still pay them, but for them to accumulate for me. This post is three months of cozyblue. Time to catch up. Mail comes tomorrow. I wonder what else is in it.

Arxhena Lunch

Hotel Arxhena not only has lovely views, it has great lunch. Even Bashkim was replete. And yes, the meat was lamb. I miss gadding about.

X Octagon #34 - Work From Home #4

Another start. I'm not starting nearly as many as in May, and I'm trying to keep these ones small.

Almost Cornered

The second corner is so close to being done! And I've started on the third one, too. Rhodes stitches on the bottom house progressing.

Patreon Swag

In April, Tracy Horner of Ink Circles started on Patreon. I subscribed at the highest rate. I get all her new charts plus an exclusive to Patreon chart every month plus some more things. These are some of the "plus some more  things" that she mailed me. So pretty!

Lunch View

This was the view from the corner table at Hotel Arxhena in Brod. They're a tiny ski resort. And the views are gorgeous.

New Year's Colors

I wish the rest of 2020 would be as beautiful as  the threads in this box.

Beautiful Era Meal

Just after Christmas we took a large group to Era in Peje. The place was as wonderful as usual, and we had a great time.

Another Week, Another Border

Working on the second middle border now.

Time For Tea Towels

Two sets of tea towels from Mary Corbet made their way here. Soon, I will start. They should go pretty quickly.


More work on the flag; bits of red and blue and white.

Garlic Chicken Friday

There's only one main dish that Saranda serves, and that's garlic chicken. Garlic chicken is gooood. And a great way to warm up on a chilly winter night.
