More Gaucho Festival Parade Pictures

This is the rest of the photos from the Gaucho Festival parade.  It was a very long parade.  The dogs in this top photo are what they use around here as cow dogs.  They've never heard of Sharrs, who would do so much more...

Got the Green

My order from Nordic Needle came last week, so I was able to work on the shutters.  Yay!  It's hard getting used to having to wait for any kind of supply.  I can't just go drive and get most things here.

To the Edge

I made it to the edge of page one!  There's still a huge amount to do, but at least I now have the parameters delineated.

Gaucho Festival Parade Part 1

This parade reminded me of the Fort Worth Livestock Show parade - lots and lots of horses and people in nineteenth century garb.  Horses behaving, horses out of control, and a lot of manure on the ground.  It was fun to watch and reminded me of home.  Children as young as three were riding their own horses and the most frequent flag was "Libertad o Muerte", one any Texan could understand.  There were a lot of pictures, so I've divided it into two posts.  By the way, the correct name of the festival is Patria del Gaucho.

A Small Stitchlong Start

The Marquoir group put out this little four part heart for a Mother's Day design.  I completed the first part in an afternoon and really like the color choices for the design.  Parts come out weekly.

And Seven Down

I am done with part seven of Herz Rot Weiss!  It's coming along pretty well, and I adore the color combination.
