Adding Some Fringe

I added some fringe to the bottom of the bell of the third jellyfish.  Now I need to do the stitching for the tentacles.  I started the first one, but there are four or five of them.

Uruguayan Countryside

A few pictures of the area around where we stayed overnight by the Gaucho Festival.  Everything was still green, since it was the end of summer, and the weather was beautiful.  Too bad the same couldn't be said for the accommodations.  We were at the Pasado del Valle Eden and ended up stuck in the seasonal help's quarters.

More of the Mystery

I worked more on the German Group Mystery this week.  I love this color combination.  For some reason, it reminds me of antique things.  Anyway, I made quite a bit of progress on part five, even though I didn't quite finish it.

Stitching's Done

Last week I finished the stitching for my exchange piece.  I think it came out pretty well.

Change to Celtic

I am the first to work on Faye's Celtic block.  It's a great big block!  After seeing it, I decided it looked like the countryside.  In Ireland and Scotland especially, crosses dot the area, so I got ambitious.  I put a Celtic Cross on it.  The lower picture shows the progress as of last Saturday, when I was couching it down.

The Southern Sky

When we went to the Gaucho Festival, we stayed out in the countryside.  It was so dark the stars popped in the night sky.  Here are some pictures of the stars of the southern hemisphere.  To actually see them you'll have to zoom in the pictures though.

This one has something streaking across the lower right corner.  We also saw either the ISS or shuttle go across the sky, but that was before the pictures were taken.

Just a longer exposure on this one.
And this is a picture of the Milky Way.  It's gorgeous.


The center motifs resemble snowflakes to me.  I'm almost halfway done with the cross stitches, too!
