Lyn's Autumn Block Done

I finished Lyn's autumn block this week. It'll be in the mail tomorrow. This is the way I received it, and after me there's only one more person to work on it. And I have only one more block in the round robin to work on, too!

Here is the block after my work. I added some of the motifs from Bulgaria, a vine on the side, and two seams - one gold one at the top to balance the gold on bottom, and then beads across the top of the orange. I know Lyn adores Cobi's work (so do I, she does awesome things), so I left the central area blank for Cobi to play with. I hope Lyn likes my additions.

Last Of...

I finished the last of the skirt under the flag this week and worked more on the flounce. It's kind of nice being able to tick off areas as done.

Scoping It Out Part Two

This week, I started on part two of the Kaleidoscope. I'm getting more colors, and at the end of this part there's going to be a lot more stitching on this piece done. I'm doing it as a stitchalong with the German language Marquoir group on I'd like to thank the moderators and Tracy Horner for allowing us to do this!

Rounding Down

I'm beginning to get the huge middle part done - the outer circle shows itself curving down this week. I'll probably get the W and E done over the next week. Yay!

Foot and Tire

This week I did a bit of the foot and some more of the front tire. I'm at the anxious point where I can tell it's nearly done, but it's not close enough to get done in a day or so- which is my criterion for sitting and just finishing something.

Putting the Bottom On

I was working on this at picture time, so it' s only partially through the weekly two needles-ful of floss. I'm still in love with the Tentakulum colors, and like the fabric too, even though I have to take my glasses off to work on it.

And Now the Eighth

Yep, I got the eighth part of Zentangle done this week. It's got either two or three parts to go. I have the ninth part in my possession, but I won't work on it until I have part two of the Kaleidoscope Mandala done.
