Renfair Meal

So, um, did I tell you I hadn't downloaded my phone pics for a while?  Turns out here are some more from home leave.  On our last weekend in the US, we went to Houston for the airshow and the Texas Renaissance Festival.  We bought special tickets for the renfair - ones that included lunch and entertainment in a special pavilion.  Turns out it was a very wise move!  There was a huge downpour Sunday morning, the day we went, and it was still raining when we went in for lunch.  Lunch was delicious and the entertainment was spectacular.  By the time we got out, it even had stopped raining and the sun was shining.

Mapping In Cross Stitch

Andreas found this on Amazon, and now it's mine.  It's prefinished, so I can stitch on it more as we add countries to our list of visited.

More Feathers

I can definitely tell the progress every time, and the peacock is coming along well.

Homemade Ajvar

My language teacher's mother gave us some of her homemade ajvar (on the right) and ketchup.  The ketchup is more like tomato sauce, and I will use it as such.  Ajvar is a red pepper paste.  It's a popular condiment here, and I thank her very much!

Afghan for Isabella

The Bartletts had their baby this month, and this afghan is going to Colombia to greet them when they get back home.  I said no pink, so they picked orange.

Done And Beaded

Yay, I have a finish this month!  It didn't take too long to do.

I've got the second box done outside of outlining.  Once I'm done outlining the second box, I'll add the beads for the poinsettias.  For now, I'm happy I'm progressing.
