Vineyard Silk Temari

 I experimented again with temari and used Vineyard Silk to embroider this ball.  It's a prize for a crazy quilter, so I experimented with thread.  I think it came out pretty well, and it's just fun to touch because it's so soft.  It's also on its way to its recipient!

Bellagio Water Show - Las Vegas

I finally got the photos Andreas took from our trip to Las Vegas last year.  These are all of the Bellagio fountain show at night.  I think he got the pictures to look spectacular.

Four Parts Done

I've now got four parts done.  Since this is over one, the width is about four and a half inches.  At some point, I'll have Andreas take a picture with a coin next to it.

A Sticklounge Christmas

I've started a new Sticklounge project.  This is an advent calendar, with 24 different squares by several designers.  I've got one done!

Greek in Moldova

Last week, we had dinner one night at Opa Greek Taverna downtown.  It's not a large restaurant, and its decor isn't exactly posh, but the food's really good.  We had taziki, Greek salad, kebabs, and souvlaki.  They all tasted great despite everyone around us smoking. 

Definitely Half Way

I'm definitely halfway done with this; it's coming along quickly!

Another Ornamental Start

I had some linen floss on my desk asking me to make something with it for a few weeks.  I picked this ornament out of the 2011 JCS Ornament issue and started.  It'll make someone a nice little gift.
