A Purchase

Something else from the Prado - a beautiful belt loop.  I'll be hanging it on my belt while camping to hold my knife and fork set.  Probably will also use it with my Scottish outfit.  Anyway, I think it's neat!

Due to a technical failure, I don't have a before picture of this block.  The only area not previously covered was the green on the left, so I did it.  I made spring flowers, added a butterfly, and did a bit of seamwork.  I hope Betty likes it when she gets it.

My Mate Cup

It was decided that we would get mate cups before we leave in July.  I picked this one out at the Semana Criolla.  It's super nice because it's porcelain-lined, meaning no curing it and it won't go bad.  I like it.

In an out of the way corner of the Prado, we came across some trucks from the local fire station.


I'm getting really close now - down to two and a bit more squares.  I'm -so- ready to have this done.

Local F3

There was a "Semana Criolla" at the Prado last week.  Lots of local products, a rodeo, a gaucho song competition, and so on.  One item they had outside one of the buildings was a race car!  This car is used in F3 races in Uruguay, Argentina, and Brazil, and is sponsored by one of the local shoe companies.

Two of Four

I managed to get a whole leaf done in one session this week.  The second gingko leaf is done, so two more on the upper area, and one in the cut out.
