Nibbles served with the wine we tasted at Chateau Vartely on an embassy-sponsored trip.  The wines were pretty good.

Backstitch and Beading

All the backstitch is done, and the beading started.  LOTS of beading to do, but should have this done by the end of the month!

Stitched Up

My quick little project is done.  It's nice to have instant gratification every once in a while.  If you didn't catch it, the project's name is Grow! from Just Nan.

Rest of Las Vegas

Pictures of both the Strip and Fremont Street.  We were only there for three days and don't gamble at all.

Off the Charted Path

Being me, I decided to change the colors of the littl flowers from yellow to blue, and I started one of them.

Christmas Temari

The local International Women's Club is holding a bazaar in about ten days.  I've been asked to make some crafts for it.  So, I've decided to make some temari.  This is one of them - and it already sold.  One of my fellow volunteers paid full price for it while we were pricing things on Saturday.  Oh, and all proceeds from the whole bazaar go to local charities.  First priority is roofing a special needs daycare center.

Where the Sidewalk Ends

This week, it was work on the sidewalk.
