All Bordered Up

Now that I have the outer edges done, somewhat, it's time to work on the insides again.  I like the color combination on black.

Almost Two Pages Down

I was stitching on this the other day and realized how far I've gotten.  I'm almost two full pages in, and it's looking pretty good.  This is the widest part of the dragon.  Things get less wide from here on out, which will help with the look of progress.

Cafe Del Mar

A couple of Friday nights ago we went to Cafe Del Mar, a restaurant on the Ilha in Luanda.  Not only are they a restaurant, they will serve you at a beach chair during the day so you can watch the waves on the beach. The water, unfortunately, is not good enough to swim in.  The service was impeccable and the food was pretty good.  Andreas had a pasta dish, and I had picanha.  As usual, Angolans cut and cook it waaay too thin.  The fried banana was tasty and my caprianha was very good.  Overall it was a pleasant evening by the ocean waves.

Getting Darker

As the petals go toward the middle they get darker.  I've been getting far enough to see this now.  Progress is slow, but it is progress...

To The Bin

I pulled this out to add to my rotation and worked on it twice.  After that, I decided it brought me no joy to do and I had no use for it, so it went into the charity bin.

Maker Bracelet

Working through my backlog of craft project and I finished something new - another bracelet.

Yay, I have most of the background done!  All I have after that is a bit of beading and placing large objects.
