I've almost got the flower outlined.  Then I can start the fun patterning stuff.


I am so close to being done!  The tombstones have a grassy area below them and then two more bands.

Optical Illusion

We were doing the walking tour in Krakow and I spotted this illusion in the window as we were stopped listening to the guide.  The lady's reflection combined with the curtain gives the impression of someone inside the store.  Kind of neat, and Andreas captured it well with his camera.

Border And Shirt

The border and the shirt are stepping up to be stitched.  So close to being done with the border.

Back On The Curb

I concentrated on the bottom area of the piece this time.  Got quite a bit of curb done, if I do say so myself.

My Favorite Church

 These are the photos Andreas took of the little church between Brasov and Onesti.  I shared the ones I took earlier.  I so want to make a needlepoint out of this!

From The Salt Mine

Surprisingly, we got salt from the salt mine - both salt we mined ourselves and salt to eat.  I also got a shot glass.  We ended up with two salt grinders because we bought the plastic one first and it broke first use.  Sad face.  It may look great, but it's cheaply constructed.  The wooden one works!  All the rocks below are salt we took out of the mine on our trip.  It's edible, too.
