Another Bought for Charity

 This one, too, was destined for the winter bazaar and didn't make it.  It went home to one of the organizers for her charitable donation, and is now sitting atop a candlestick.  I truly have fallen in love with these big kikus on big balls.  Evidently, the people here have too.

The Neighborhood

One of my friends told me on Facebook that I needed to put up some pictures of the area, since she had of their new town, Tokyo.  So, I took Mattie for a walk about a week and a half ago and took these pictures.  They're not up to Andreas' standard, but they're what I can do. 

As you can see, the neighborhood is rather, um, mixed in architecture and such.  The last picture in this series is the front door to our house, which is a very nice place.

And Another...

Another in the series of eight pointed kiku temari.  The colors on this one came out very rich and Victorian.  It's also going to the winter bazaar for charity.

Two Fruit Done

I am now officially a third of the way done.  I like the way it looks, but it's sure taking a while.

Local Shop(s)

 Andreas was only allowed to take three pictures with my cell phone before the security guy stopped him, but these give you an idea of what Gemenii is like, at least.  The linens booth is the only one of its kind in the trims area - all the rest are embroidery, buttons, trims and yarns.  Nothing fancy display-wise, but a lot of nice stuff to be found.

Branching Down

Looks like it was time to edge downwards again - and get some more red done in the meantime.

Beginning to Take Shape

It is beginning to look like a real landscape.
