On To The Lips

This goes quickly when I work on it. I think at most two more sessions and it will be done.


Keeping This

I need to do goldwork more often. I enjoyed doing this, and I think it came out well.


All Branched In

I think this came out pretty well. I completely changed out the middle square.


Farming Scene

I'm not sure if this is supposed to be meadows or fields, but it's done.


A Little Carol

Carol is getting some love here after all the photos of the boys.


Skenderbeu Edifice

This building was built during Hoxha times in Kruje fortress to extol the heroism of Skenderbeu and communist Albania. Simultaneously.

Almost To The Top

It's almost to the top. This will be done in a week or so.


Rounded Snowflake

My first experiment with mounting snowflakes this way. Do you think it's okay?


On The Last Row!

I am so totally on the last row with this one. I think it looks pretty good, too.


Almost All Round

Almost all of the outside is stitched. I like the colors so far.


Time To Climb

Chad making himself comfortable at the table (with a cameo by Grayson).


Castle Ruins

This is the remains of one of the buildings that was inside Kruje fortress when it was taken by the Ottomans.

Stitchybox Fabrics

Four months' worth of stitchybox fabrics. I decided to post them all together.


On To Eight

This hasn't been getting much love, but the eighth house is started.


Working On Swirls

An eye is done. And working on swirls below it.


Finally, Non-Green

At least a second color now. A start on the cottages too.


Marriott Breakfast

When we went last year, the Skopje Marriott had ... issues ... coping with COVID. This was breakfast. No buffet. We were in the junior suite, which gives access to the business lounge. No lounge. They neglected to say anything about the workarounds of dinner vouchers and so on. So disappointed.


Fortress Irises

These were in the courtyard. Aren't they beautiful?

Slow Going

This is stuck at about a third done because the spinner hates it. I like it, though.


All Coppery Petals

I am very happy with how this turned out! I will be keeping it.


A Circular Snowflake

Snowflake attached to a hoop. Going to make more of these.


Sleep Mode

What better way to spend the day than napping?


Making Squares

Large amount of squares in this piece! At least I've been able to change colors.
