Ornament for Exchange

 It's the time of year to exchange ornaments again, and I sent this one as part of the Brooke's Books exchange.  It went to Mexico for Maru.  She's gotten it and the temari I included with it, and likes it.  Yay, mission accomplished!

More Costume Pictures

This mall, by the way, was formerly a prison.  In fact, the current president of Uruguay was incarcerated here for fourteen years.  But on to the costumes.  These ones are from Joan of Arc, I think.  There are some lower down that have some neat embellishment!

Creeping Along si

I seem to be done with the skirt itself pretty much - finally.  Still getting kind of sick of golden brown, but it does look good.

Joy of Florimell

This week I started the Prairie Moon Joy ornament from the JCS 2010 ornament issue.  Of course I changed up the floss and material.  Last month I picked up a skein of Gloriana's Florimell and decided to use it for this.  The coverage is really good - I've been using only one ply.  And I really love the color brilliance.  Besides, it feels nice.  I know I'll pick up more Florimell in the future, especially if I can find it on sale. $7 a skein is pricy.

Exhibit at the Mall

The local mall had an exhibit of costumes from the last twenty years in its atrium last month.  A lot of them were really neat and from Spanish language versions of such classics as "The Importance of Being Earnest" and "The Lion in Winter".   All of the costumes were used in local productions here in Montevideo.  There's some really interesting construction on some of the outfits.

Still Tentacling the Fifth

Still working on the fifth jellyfish, and it's about to be put on hold until after the new year, along with most of my regular stuff.  Got too many gifts to make! 

More Heart

Back to the Herz Rot Weiss and working on getting more parts of it done.  Three squares in this section.  Got the first almost done.
