Blue Personality

The blue frog is big enough now to have a personality. He seems a bit anxious, for some reason. Maybe because he can fall?


Almost Three Big Words

The big words are the largest chunk of this piece. And I have almost all of them done. The rest should go more quickly.

Black Needle Society Box

I subscribed to this last year, so it's still not breaking my self imposed stash diet. This only comes every other year, but it's big. I have new things to do and a bunch of little things  to play with.


Long Legged Tiny Carol

A lot of Carol traits in this photo - anxiety, long legs, still wanting to be friends, not quite sure of anything.

Fire And Air

Yay, the top half of this is done!


Third Flowering

This is getting to the point where it will be a daily stitch to get it done soon. I like crewel. It goes so much more quickly.


Stitchybox Birthday Bash Box Opened

This was several months late, but it's here and opened and now I can make that bee up top right.


A Socially Distanced Meeting

The puppies plot their takeover of the household. That's silly; they already run it.

Getting Hopeful

When I am done with this last, started, tree, there are three more parts to go. They don't look huge. I am beginning to get hopeful I will finish this.


Down To The Bottom

I have now officially hit the bottom row. I -think- I'm about halfway done, overall. The piece is slowly taking shape.


Lots Of White

There is so much white on this! But it's hooped up now and gifted to a good home.


Grayson The Short

Top down like this, Grayson looks smaller than he is.

Officially Over Halfway

Three boxes past the halfway point. Yay! I think it's looking pretty good so far.


Almost All The Dates

I am almost done with the last year's date. Yay! That's a lot of progress, as the last panel doesn't have a date in it.

Young Carol

This photo is of Carol before she grew old enough to have the brown spot on her head. Doesn't she look adorable?

Yarn Bombed Prizren

Downtown Prizren has several yarn bombed trees. And it had a lot of people out and about for a pandemic happening. No masks, too.


Working On The Top

 Still working on the blue part of the flag and the pole. There are a lot of stitches there, but it's slowly taking shape.

Time To Get Happy

I forgot how hard it was to pull pearl cotton through linen. I'm relearning the lesson with this piece. It takes a lot longer to make each stitch. All but one color on this now; it'll get done at  some point, since it's in the rotation.


Bathed In Sunlight

 An old photo of Chad and Carol before they started looking bigger.

Because Steak On A Stone

We went to Prizren to buy filigree jewelry because, well, it's beautiful. And why not go to the factory? While in Prizren we ate at Marashi, a restaurant by the river. They had steak on a stone! And gorgeous mushrooms! And an outside terrace that was cooled by mist. It was a lovely way to spend an afternoon. So lovely we went back. And will be back again.

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.
