Back To Browns

This last time, I didn't get to work on the peacock - only the tree side.  I did, however, get to add some green to it!

The Middle Part

I know I'm making progress, but it just doesn't show much.  On the other hand, with those confetti stitches, I know they go down to the bottom....

Out And Back Again

 Back in January, I sent this block out as part of the Wine round robin.  Below, you can see its condition when returned.  Thank you Beryl, Darlene, Carol, and Kathy!  It looks fabulous, and, as I said in my original booklet, I'll be sending it to my husband's parents to be made into a wall hanging for them!

Bits Bought

 Just more stash bought while in the US....

Possible Class

 I have volunteered to teach a beginning temari class this coming Saturday.  It's summer, though, and people are moving or on vacation, so it probably won't happen.  Anyway, I made this temari as a class model.  It's a simple double kiku.

Betting The Alpha

Almost all the alphabet is done now, and I'm about to start some more ribbon roses.

For Wine

Another embassy artisan buy - this one's a handmade jug for holding wine.  I like the look of it, and the silhouette, although that part's hard to see at this angle.
