Scenes of Summer

Yes, I know it's winter up north, but this is how the end of my street looks this month...

A Small Project

This project only took a few days.  I got it out of an old issue of Needle Arts, and I think it came out pretty well.  The reason for the color variation is that I used an overdyed Weeks Dye Works floss.

Linear Progress

That long line slinking down tle left side is almost to the bottom of the second page.  Now to finish the last three rows on the first page.

Another Tabla del Campo

A few weeks ago, we had a tabla del campo in the local mall.  Here's how it arrived.  It's the Uruguayan equivalent of antipasto.

Backyard Bird

 It seems a pair of hummingbirds has built a nest in one of our trees.  Andreas caught one of them fluttering about the back yard last week.

Beading for Peggy

 This was the last block I was working on for the beaded round robin.  As you can see, there's not much room left, either. 
So here is what I did: I made a bead flower and a fan out of beads and jewelry findings.  I also did one seam because that was all that was left.  She's got it now and likes it.  That's all I can ask.

Asian Block Home!

This top picture is how I sent the block out.  I asked for a more Arabian theme instead of the usual oriental.  They did well!  Thank you so much to Peggy, Rita, Candji, and Darlene!  You can see their work below, from a flying carpet to a magic lamp.
