Millions of Peaches

I have the feeling that I'm going to have done millions of peach colored stitches by the time I'm done with this.  All the work this round has been peach colored.  At least it's done, right?


I am down to underlining the outer border of Chilly Wind.  I work on it while waiting for the shawarma to be made or when I'm in the doctor's waiting office.  It's progressing, and that is good.

Ana found this button maker here in town and got together a group buy for us.  I put in a hundred pesos (about $5) and got all these cute laser-cut buttons.  They are supposedly out of some kind of exotic wood, but I don't know what.  They'll be used for crazy quilting soon.

Muumuus, Leggings, and Animal Prints....

Today's selection of parade pictures ... tomorrow evening we go to the inaugural parade which kicks off the "official" Carnaval fetivities!

Baumchen Done!

I finished Baumchen earlier this month.  I think it came out pretty well, and am going to ask Betsy to make it into a bag for me.

Second Square Done!

Yay!  I finished the second square!  Only a bit less than two more to go.

Fanning Out

More of the "peacock feathers" are done.  Time to start working on the last of them.
