Dark Spring

This doesn't look like the name of the design - springtime path. Needless to say, these were changed colors.


Another Bit Of Home Finishing

This is mounted on a 5x7 canvas board. Not too shabby for a first try at it.


One More Mandala Done

This little piece had a LOT of stitches. It's done now and looks pretty good! I will make this into a small diamond ornament soon.


All three people are coming in now. The building is almost done, too. Getting close!

Quilting Grids

Grids to square up my fabric for finishing. Thank you Andreas and Amazon Prime Day.


Peach And Green

Done with one more ornament! This one finished up pretty well.


Evidence Based Science by VanCityStitchCo - Work From Home #35

This is a small sampler that I already have a recipient for. Now to get it done.


Missing Belly

The second dragon is missing only his belly. The left hand seaweed is done, and there's a third dragon begun on the left, too.

Pretty Octagon

Another pretty little ornament finished. I'm feeling like I may have enough this year.


I started and finished this llama all on the same day. It's my first work from home finish!

Leafing Out

I have two and a half leaves done! It's getting to be a bit more done.


Bit Of Blue Flower

One whole flower done! And a second started.

It's Done

I managed to hoop this up. Still hate the colors, but it's done and will go to someone who likes them.


Jodyri October and September

This is the two month combined shipment from Jodyri. Time for me to use more floss.

At The Ball Park by Laura J. Perin - Work From Home #37

This looks like a Mexican blanket to me, in the colors I've chosen. It's almost halfway done already.

Vicki's Essence by Keslyn - Work From Home #33

This is an experiment with the colors. Maybe it'll be good and defined. Maybe not.

Sunflower Pumpkin - Work From Home #34

This is a little Mill Hill kit pulled out of my stash to get done.

Vining Around

Vines and leaves and wine bottle. All look to be there.


Jodyri Advent Kit

This came from England in good time. Starting Tuesday, I get to begin opening!


Interchange Kit

The mail played havoc with this. It was mailed at the end of August and finally got to me at the end of October. But I -will- still do this Linda Kreinmiller kit.


Coffee Done

One more ornament done. I've got a sizable pile of stuff finished for Christmas.

Working Around

I've begun the circle around the sun's face. That means I'm that far down to being done. Lots of orange this time, too.


Flag And Shoulders

Working on the flag and the shoulder. Slow going.

Diamond Box Opened

There were fifteen items in this color box. I don't understand the pink and blue colors, but technically there are diamonds that color. Now to get something done with this stuff.

Back Of The Head

The back of the head's done. Now to start on the front some.


Missing Two Kinks

All but two of the curves on the knots are done. That means I'm almost to the filling in!


Cotton & Twine August

August's box took three months to get to me and was busted up when it got here. Nothing in the actual kit was damaged or lost. This will be started soon.



One good thing about this summer is that we had to find new restaurants and places to go to that were out in the countryside and adhered to social distancing. This was one of our finds - N'Katun. It's on the road between Vushtrri and Pristina. 
We are so glad we discovered it and will be going back when we can. We got a set menu - something we try to do whenever we go places. It's easier. One of our pod said this was the best beef she'd had in Kosovo. It, along with everything else, tasted wonderful on a beautiful summer day.

Smirky Frog

The green frog has a bit of a smirk. And its head is about done.


More Than Halfway

More than halfway through. This is a lot of stitching for such a small piece. Dense!


Ready To Go

The horse is ready to go to its new home now. If it's a horse!


Sushico Is Better Than Nothing

We used to go to Sushico. We've ordered from them since March, but the food doesn't survive transport too well. They also seem to not take as much care. It's sad. I miss eating places in person.
