Last Of The National Museum

 These are the last of my imperfect pictures at the National Museum.  As you can tell, they do a -lot- of cross stitch.

New Strategy

Since I'm so close to the bottom of this, I've decided to work on finishing it from left to right now.  The bottom left corner is all done - yay! - which means I'm getting close to the end.  As you can see, though, the stitching is a lot more dense on the bottom half than the top.

More Textiles

I know these pictures aren't up to my usual standard.  That's because I took them with the point and shoot instead of Andreas taking them with the Nikon.  I hope to drag Andreas out to this museum at some point to take better pictures.  Anyway, lots of beautiful local textiles to look at!


Well, I've gotten a lot of work done on this and even have one flower complete.  Maybe I'll get it all done soon.

More E

The umbrella and the E shading under it are coming along.

Traditional Moldovan textiles

 The Moldovans do a lot of cross stitch, rug making, knitting, and crocheting.  Here are some pictures of textiles from the National Museum, including some bits of national costume.
