The Windows Have Wheels

This week was Jessica week. I did four of them on the central house and several large Rhodes stitches on other windows in the same color. Not much done outside of that, but it was a lot of work.

A Door-ed

The big door's done. I also did some more on windows. Now on to more windows and sky.

Dog Wrangling

These are pictures from Saturday morning. We got to the park with the market in it at the time the dog walkers were plying their trade. It looked like beagle-mania. I don't know how they get all the beagles back to the right owners.

Can you imagine trying to wrangle all those dogs at the same time? Nearly everyone in Uruguay has a dog and the people here are the most dog friendly I've seen.

A Bit More Mystery

Beginning to stitch a bit more despite a procession of maintenance people in and out of the house, I've completed part three of Tam's Christmas Mystery. It's getting there. Now onto See the Stars part ten.

More Pinker

Working on my travel piece this week, I got the ribbon floss laid and the beads in place. She calls for the beads at this point, so I'm putting them in in the fear that I'll have to be careful about working around them.

On the Second Row

I'm on the second row now of the first rectangle, so you can pretty much make out the pattern of it now. This picture doesn't quite capture the color well, though. On the second line, I'm wandering across rather nicely. It's much more complicated than the top line was.

A New Purse

We went to the local market on Saturday despite the threat of rain and there was a stall selling handmade handbags. I bought this one for all of $12.50 US (250 Uruguayan pesos). Not bad. I really like the feel of the leather, and love the color.

Here's a picture of it closed with the nice detail on the flap. At this price, I might be able to indulge in a few more.
