Closing In On Two

I have more of the left garden done. The top part's done and the bottom's more than halfway. Next time I work on this I'll be starting the right side, too.

One Flower

Two motifs done now that I have a flower finished. Going. Slowly, but going.

Lady Justice

This is to go with Lady of the Flag and Queen of Freedom. Now to get it started.

Dinner At Le Bouchon

These photos are from last spring, before we went to Frankfurt. We had wine and dinner at Le Bouchon, a cute restaurant in Pristina. We all sat outside, as it was a beautiful evening. Andreas had duck, which he said was very good. I had dessert for dinner. They had a flight of desserts, and I'm allowed to do this every once in a while. They all were very, very good.

Third House Started

The yellow house is nearly halfway through and I've started on the next.

One Sided

All the ribbon on one side is done. Off to start the bells.


Indian Summer is all ready to hang on the "tree" next Christmas. Andreas has already told me we're staying home this year.

Lunch In Cologne

During our short trip to Cologne we had a meal at a local pub near a Christmas market. My goulash was excellent. Andreas liked his soup and chicken.

Third Boxed Almost

I have the middle of the third square to do and then the fourth. Coming along.

Meet Sylvester

My peacock is done. Now to wait for February for the next part. I've decided to do it monochrome, and his name is Sylvester.

January Ipsy

Time to experiment with things.

Winter Painting

Elyssa held a painting class, and this is how mine turned out.

Beginning The Way Up

Working my way up now. Things will just get thicker.

Glossybox January

Another mask, but the rest looks interesting. So time to use them.

For A Friend

This only took a day, but it looks pretty good. Time to make it into something hangable.

Lunch At Guri I Kuci

Bashkim called ahead to the restaurant the day before because he wanted lamb. We got lamb. Everything was ready for us when we got there, and it tasted very good. The lamb was slow cooked and tender. The peppers in cream and salad were excellent. And the cappucino was a great end.

Crochet Magazine

I found this at a supermarket in Amsterdam. Now to make some of the stuff!

Still Bordering

I've got three colors on the border going, and it's coming along. Still a lot of border to do.

Lunch View

After our coffee break and first meeting, we went to Guri i Kuci, up on the mountain above Rugova Gorge. This is the view from the restaurant.

Jodyri Threads

Cotton subscription threads from Jodyri designs in the UK. I'm not sure about all that gray. I'll have to figure something out for them.

Eldering The Flowers

Another bit done on this. The flowers are coming along and one coffin is complete.

Gorenje Cappucino

Every month I go on a road trip for work. In November, we stopped at the Gorenje in Peje for morning coffee. They make a pretty cappucino.

January Cozyblue

January's cozyblue mandala. It's gold on gold.

Notta Ginger

The second tree is coming along well. I don't know what Andreas is calling this now.

Class Temari

I am teaching a dozen women how to make this temari next month. Should be interesting with the language barriers.

On To The Second Side

I've begun working on the second side. With each side being a bit different, it won't feel so repetitious, right?

Sneeking Across

I'm all the way across with Sneek now and able to work downwards some. At least I won't have to worry about taking out stitches on the right.

Ipsy December

Lots of stuff to explore. Not sure I want to put the shiny stuff on, and I still don't like the paper face masks, but I'll try.

Random Pristina Dinner

This was a dinner back in November. It was good, but I've forgotten where it was!

Working On Backstitches

I've gotten far enough along to do a bit of backstitching. Plus I'm plowing away on the second house.

Hat And Gloves

I ordered a hat and gloves from FabFitFun. When they came, they were the wrong color. Without me asking, the company sent me an email saying they would send the right color and to keep the wrong colored ones, too. About two months later, here's the right color.
