That Was Quick!

The quickie is all done and ready to be made into an ornament!  It's much brighter than the picture in person.

Tuscan Tradeoff

I forgot to rotate the picture before posting it, but here's the Tuscan mandala.  Another acantus leaf outlined and the top part of the first corner is almost done.  Progress, no matter how slow, is still progress...

Monogrammed Again

This was the last of the monogram blocks for me to work on.  It's for Nicki Lee, and it came to me a bit bare.  I hope she likes how I added to it.  The finished block is in the picture below.

Lunch at a Bookstore

 About three weeks ago, people at the embassy went on a walking tour of political history in Uruguay.  It was really interesting, and we ended it with lunch in the cafe at Puro Verso in Ciudad Vieja.  Pictures of food!  It was all good and, as you can see, beautifully presented.  The bookstore's neat, too.

A Wintry Scene

Wendy picked an icy winter scene for her Winter DYB blocks.  I embellished this one for her.  I hope she likes it. 

Nearing ...

... a fourth row of six done.  The end is in sight!

Stucco and Sidewalk

Some of  the bottom sidewalk and then an extension of the peaches on the top story.  Next time, up to sky and roof.
