Jodyri August

More floss to play with. August's shipment came quickly.


Starting The Flowers

Yay, I'm finally starting the flowers!

Be Kind - Work From Home #20

Another small work from home start. This one should get done quickly, too. I am trying to knock out the small things on my list as quickly as possible.


More Garden Stuff

More stuff in other pots. We got a decent crop this year, too. This was taken at the beginning of May.

This is now all the way around and the top edge is almost done. A quick little pandemic pattern.


Ornament Gifted

I finally managed to finish this, and Shpresa has received it. One more thing complete!


Another Trip, More Filigree

More filigree bought on our last trip to Prizren. We have another trip next week....

Got To Garden

Andreas decided we needed to get serious about gardening this year. So this set of photos in April shows a bit of the project.

Kindness Always Matters - Work From Home #19

I started this with someone in mind. I know she will like it. And, at this rate, it might get into my rotation this year.


In Time For Halloween

This pumpkin is already promised a home, and, when I get it all nicely framed, will be going there. In the meantime, it's another finish for me. Yay!


Ink Circles Necklace

Tracy has started cutting up some of her original mandalas and making necklaces. I snagged myself one.


Lots Of Chad And A Little Carol

Happy Berries - Work From Home #18

Another new Ink Circles release started. I can't keep up with them!


Big Cucumber

Andreas said this was the biggest cucumber he's ever seen. So he bought it. Probably weighed almost a kilo.


Boning Up

Tenth square is started. Bones are showing.


Grayson Gazes At Sheep

Grayson loves looking at sheep, and sometimes there's a flock of them out behind the subdivision. He's not actually met any up close.

The Blue Set

Andreas decided I needed more pens. These are from Jet Pens. I didn't know about them until they got here.

Third Cornering

 The photo is off by a turn, but you can see in the bottom left corner that the third willow tree and gate are well underway.

Golden Yellow

Lots of yellow coming through for the bottle's neck. Still looking quite incomplete, though.


My Lovely Mattie

These photos of Mattie were taken back in April. She still had a lot of living to do and enjoyed her life. Unfortunately, Mattie died on Saturday the 12th, in the evening, surrounded by many of us who love her. 
Mattie is sorely missed. She has left a very large hole in our lives and our hearts. I turn around every day thinking I will see her. She was an awesome companion and a loyal friend, getting me through some truly tough times. I grieve that my Sharrvelous is gone, but know that she is no longer in pain and is buried in a place where the mountains surround her.

Global Artisan Textiles

I ordered some thread from Global Artisans, since they're the only other distributor than African Folklore Embroidery for House of Embroidery threads. AFE totally fell down on the job. So these came. And I was surprised, because all I ordered was thread. Thank you! They were fast, too.


Beginning Faces

Both faces are just beginning to show on this. Upper sky done, too!


On To Fifteen

Another square done. Maybe about a fifth of the way complete on this!


Sploring In The Rain

 Rain or shine, Chad loves his walkies. He explores the neighborhood and finds something new every time.

A Needlepoint Diamond

One more needlepoint bit done. It'll be made into an ornament for Christmas. I like how it turned out.
