And It's Done

Second of six? seven? done. I think it came out well. Going to the new owner this week.


Evi Practice

At least it's not evil. There's a best practice there.


Three Puppy Pile

There were three on the bed and the little one rolled over, rolled over...


Prizren River

Went to Prizren last August. Found some yarn bombing and the famous, underwhelming bridge. Guess I shouldn't expect it to be too big, since it was made in the 1500's.

Aventail by Ink Circles - Work From Home #23 2021

This is in a Threadworx color from my stash. Part of the first quarter is done. Looks rather regal.


Fire And Air

Parts of fire and air are done. They don't look bad.


Wildflower Heart Circle

I made this into a hoop, and I will be keeping it. I like  the way it looks.


Coy Pose

Not ready to judge, Carol poses and looks curious. She's our diva.

It's A Phage

Outline of a bacterium done, plus the first page.


Taking Notes

Chad has been listening to Leonora's college lectures. He believes he can take notes now.

Easy Finishing

This was a truly easy finish. I glued it to a piece of plain white painting board. It's straighter than it looks in the photo, and has been given as a gift.

Down To The Peeps

Beginning to work on the peeps. The words are all done and the building almost is. This will be done soon!

Stitchybox Fabric February

This fabric is a bit lighter than in the photo. It's definitely a useful color for me. 

Almost Best

I am so close to having this line of lettering done.


Right At Halfway

The photo is upside down, but it does show that I'm halfway done with this, even though the spinner isn't being kind and picking it often.


Watching Puppy Daddy

Carol and Chad keeping an eye on the Golden Guy as he does whatever.

Arranging Microbes by Ink Circles - Work From Home #18 2021

Another new Ink Circles chart, so another start. This one is right up my alley.


All Washed Up

A small stitched finish to be made into something real soon.


The Ultimate Gentleman

"I don't always play with stuffed animals, but when I do it's cow." He's looking like he needs to be in a commercial.



Leonora found a bakery to make this cake for us in honor of one year since the beginning of lockdown in Kosovo. It came out beautiful. We had to do something to commemorate. At least the first vaccines reached Kosovo last week.

Seven Of Eight Trees

Only one more tree to go on this, along with one more house to finish specialty stitches on. This is beginning to get more spinner love, so more work.


Little Squares

Four little squares done this time. The row I am working on marks the middle of the piece. So much progress.


Prepared To Hang

This is ready to hang. Not sure if it's going to the office or at home, though.


Cuddling The Cow

While Grayson rips toys apart, he loves them too. Cow is something we have on subscribe and save. Did you know you can do that for pet toys? Cow has a sound box in it that moos. All three puppies love the moo. So they love the cow. Grayson is showing his love of it - as he keeps the other two from getting it.

S12 Kiku Temari - Work From Home #21 2021

This was my first use of the threads Andreas' parents sent me. They do temari well. This has already been gifted to someone who loves balls. I will be making more.


Late Stash

I ordered these from European Cross Stitch Company back last November. They came a week or so ago. One is a sampler to make; the other is the Baroque Garden from Chatelaine. All the threads for it. I have the pattern and I'm sure I can scrounge up the fabric.


Sew Sampler February Box

This is going to be interesting to work with. I want to be able to sew for a bit.

Petal Pusher by Ink Circles - Work From Home #20 2021

I decided to make the outlines white instead of black on this one. Will see how this works out.


Chad And Flip

Chad likes to eat on the stairs.

Scrolling Frame

Lots of frame here. The right side is all the way to the middle. Next, I'll start filling in the middle.


Fixing The Mistake

There was a mistake in some earlier stitching, so I've been fixing some of it. I've been doing that this time. I can make up the rest soon.

Circling The Hexies

I am all finished with this quick project, and it's even been gifted. I like when I can give finished projects away.


Puppy Abstraction

All three of them together and looking rather weird from the angle of one of the security cameras.

All Squared Up

 This garden square ornament was gifted to someone last week. Yay for things finding good homes!

Hedgehog Eye

This hedgehog has a great big eye staring out at everything now.


Peeking Out

This is beginning to take on personality as the frogs become visible.


His Fields

Grayson believes everywhere is his to own. This field is one of his newer acquisitions.

This is not only finished, it's been given away. I think it came out pretty well, with the little flower and all.
