The wizard's robe is now all filled in and there's more outlining done on the outside.  Got some more outer vine done, too.  I feel like I've made some significant progress while doing this daily.


The owl's definitely getting personality now.

Halfway Mark

Yay, I'm to the halfway mark on this!  It's looking pretty good, except for my picture of it.

One More Branch

One more branch bit done on the left.  Things are moving along.

Lunch At Ollympians, Alexandria

 Last week I went shopping with a friend at Wegman's in Alexandria.  After shopping, we decided to eat lunch at a place close by called Olympians.  It was still just before noon on a weekend, so they were still serving breakfast, too.  We decided to do Greek.  I introduced her to Greek cheese - saganaki - and we had a bunch of food, including leftovers.  The avgolemono was good, though it could have used more lemon and less rice.  The gyro meats were also good. Tzatziki was a bit runny.  

This is one of those restaurants that tries to do everything.  On its menu was breakfast, Greek , Italian, pizza, and hamburgers.  They could do a lot better if they cut down the menu and concentrated on doing fewer things well.

Slowed Down Again

Since this is no longer the daily stitch, it's slowed down a lot. Still making progress on the stylized flowers.

Left Started

The left gargoyle is now started and there's more of the arch done on the right.  Looks like progress to me.
