By The Harbor

These photos were taken by Ohrid's harbor. They've made the area lush with vistas and garden plantings. The stray dogs love the plantings.

More Crests

There are a lot of little spikes at the top of the helmet. Getting them done slowly.

Czarina- Stitch Maynia #26

I am finally doing another one of the dodecagon ornaments. This one is off to a pretty good start. It's also different in that the outer border is in two colors instead of one.

Sweet Mesquite

I like Sweet Mesquite's barbecue and their fried okra, so we headed there on one of our last days in Fort Worth. Turns out the one we went to had a kitchen fire a few days later. Anyway, it tasted truly wonderful.

Albanian Lunch

Saint Naim is at the southern end of Lake Ohrid. About half a mile from it is the Albanian border. So we went to Albania for lunch. This place was in the first (resort) town, and on a canal tucked back from the main drag. The food was good, and too much. That pie thing was stuffed with cheese and parsley. it was truly filling. We finished lunch and drove back  to Ohrid.

Froggy Portrait

My first frog is getting more defined and better.

Beginners Whitework Ornament - Stitch Maynia #25

I am probably going to have to restart this piece. There's a poblem with the center. I should have left a thread between the eyelet and the surrounding bars. Other than that, it looks good.
