Picked Up in Sweden

I was so happy the Viking Museum had a few craft books that I bought one. Another something to add to my list of things to do.


Black Needle Society July Box

Another box from Black Needle Society. I am debating cancelling my subscription because they are getting less and less stitchy.


Most of the Mushrooms

I have most of the mushrooms done after a week of stitching. This will be finished soon.


The Rest of the Parade

The parade got a bit more chaotic toward the end.

Making the Round

Working on the spiky bits as this gets closer to completion.


Mermaid Cross Stitch

Normally I am not big on these colors, but for some reason I was this time. So I bought it. Another large project I don't have time for yet.


Well Bird

A little bird all completed in a hoop. It fits rather well.


Marching and Noise at the Parade

Took some video so you can see how they do things.

Closer to Finishing 11

I am almost done with the last corner, and with the stripe, will be done with part 11 of 12 - minus extra specialty stitches and beads. This -will- be done by the end of the year.


Portland Leather Goods

I ordered a tote mystery from Portland Leather and got all this stuff. I like it all, but the white bag is being mailed off to someone I hope likes it today.


Lap Quilt Top

This lap quilt top is ready to be sent off to Betsy for quilting. Yay! Something else finished.


More Independence Day Parade in Krakow

Nothing really holding back the crowd but respect. The horses were so well behaved, and the parade was beautiful and local.

Someday the Tree Will be Done

The tree is still not done, but more and more of page three is finished. All work done on the lower left corner.


Quilt for Andreas

Andreas' mom made this beautiful quilt for him. He loves it.


Puppies Getting Tired

Walkies and rests and walkies.


123 Stitch Stash

Bought when I needed more DMC.


Independence Day Parade

November 11 is Polish Independence Day. We were in Krakow and found a parade commemorating it. None of the parade was motorized. It was neat to watch.

Afghan for a Little Girl

One of my coworkers, Josh, has two girls. I had made an afghan for his newborn, then saw his toddler. I asked her if she wanted one too, and she said yes. So it was presented to her and, according to her daddy, did not leave her grasp for a full week.


Rest and Walkies

Puppies resting and out on walkies. They like both, even in the rain.
