More Renfair Meal

As you can see from the photos, we didn't lack for food.  I put less on my plate than most, and couldn't eat it all.  The food was fresh, hot, and tasty.  Almost everyone sniggered at the spotted dick, though, especially after the intro song to it...

A Few Flowers

This is going pretty quickly.  The stitches are so big and I feel an accomplishment with each motif.

Beginning To Fraggle

A friend of ours is leaving post in July; I'm making him this Fraggle Rock piece before he leaves.

Renfair Entertainment

These two short videos will give you an idea of the type of entertainment we had at lunch.  The skits about the next courses were cute.

One Medallion Done

I have one medallion done of the four.  I think this is going to be done in a month or so.

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.
