Two Petals Done

These are nicely couched now and look fancy.  Next, I add a piece of golden kidskin.

On The Cliffs

More ships up against the shore.  The cliffs are beautiful.  The ships are depressing.

Filling In

Slowly I am completing the picture panel.  I've got to get some DMC 611, though.  For some reason, I had none at home.  Good thing I'm in the US this week.  No wait.  The first color of rhodes stitches under the title is about done, too.

One Ship Up Close

This is a trawler left to rot.  The ship's name is appropriate.  These photos give you an idea about how these thing just sit and rust and are completely uncared for.

Teaching Temari

I will be teaching this S 10 kiku design to embassy peeps in November.  This is the sample temari.  I like the unusual colors.

Beautiful Cliffs

These are some of the gorgeous cliffs marred by the ship debris at the bottom.  I guess it doesn't make much difference from the road at the top, but it's an eyesore to boaters... and tourists, if Angola had any.

Four Square

I've completed the four major motifs for this piece.  Now to fill in the corners and complete it.
