Crazy Start #21 - Into the Night

This is a small Halloween sampler.  Maybe I can finish it by then!

Middle's Done

I've got the middle part done in this.  Yay, progress!  When I picked this up to do for an exchange, I didn't realize I'd have to stitch both sides.

Filling Out

I don't know why, but this picture looks much more "full" to me than the previous ones.  Maybe I've reached some kind of critical mass and it's looking more done to me.

Crazy Start #20 - Winter Evergreens

This is a counted needlepoint design that has two borders and a central picture.  Started on the border...

Lunch At The Loft

Before the freezer hit the atmosphere a couple of weeks ago, we went to lunch at The Loft, which is a nice cafe a couple of blocks from the embassy.  I had salad; Andreas had soup.  We both also had pizza.  The salad was more than enough to fill me up - you can see how big it is.  Pizza was wrapped up and taken home for a later lunch.  All was good and the service was excellent. 

Crazy #19 - Texas Heart

Yet another small start - Texas heart.  It looks like I got a good portion of the design done.  Hope is that I will get a lot of these small starts done in the year to come.

On The Edges

Little bits on this one, too.  I started on the edges of the bottom and got some more backstitching done on the side.
