I found this jewelry set at the medieval festival in Vatra.  I think they look cute.

Going On The Fifth

I am so very behind on my stitching.  I have very little done outside of the Tuscany piece each week and the time I spend away from the house has only increased.  Since Sunday, we have gone to a barbecue and two dinners out.  Tonight is another dinner out.  I need some time at home!

Soroca Lumiere

 This monument is a Soviet era one that has been repurposed into a religious chapel.  You can see the tower from both sides of the Dniester river and most of the city of Soroca.  You can get to it in one of two ways: the usual one of climbing a few hundred uneven and ill repaired concrete stairs or the less used driving up the back of the hill.  Guess which we took.  We managed to go on a beautiful day and to see the countryside, including livestock, on both sides of the river.

About To Bead

The cross stitches are all completed and it's time to begin beading.  True progress!

Fire Planeted

Andreas got another science fiction poster framed; this one is from the Firefly universe.

Mock Ups And Models

The black tube is part of a submarine mock up.  The rest are models.  The Nimitz museum covers the whole of the war in the Pacific and does it through interactive stuff.
