Target had a big game sale back in December. Here's some of what we bought.

On To The Body

The owl is getting a body and feathers. I like how this is looking, and so does Andreas. He is the one this is for.

Three Calamari Heads

Three heads means this square is more than halfway done. Yay! Now to get it more spun on the generator.

Saranda Chicken

Garlic chicken is a national dish of Kosovo. This restaurant, Saranda, evidently invented it. There are many garlic chicken restaurants in Kosovo (and not in any of the surrounding countries), and I agree that this is one of the best. At these restaurants, it's only garlic chicken and sides....

To The Teacup!

The teacup and its wonderful colors are started. I like how this is looking.

Sixth Framed

The sixth house is framed out and roofed. Have a bit more to go on it.

Ornament For Florine

I finished the stitching on this while visiting Florine. She liked it so much, I finished it into an ornament and gave it to her.

Cafeteria Crepe

I had this back in August, before we moved embassies. I was coming in for breakfast more often because I was working more.... they don't make them here.

Fencing Begun

I must be making progress on this, as the fence for the sheep pasture is now coming into being.

Mostly Done

This is almost all done! Except there are a lot of spiderweb wheels to put in yet.

Cozyblue February

A nice, spring-like piece to do. Maybe I will get more stitching in when the virus spreads this far.

Back Before...

Before Grayson became a puppy daddy, he was six months old and a growing puppy who managed to get into everything. And over and under everything too.

Scrolling A Bit

The inner diamond is done now, and it's time to finish off the little scrollies.

Back To The Bird

This is back in the rotation and I made quite a bit of progress. Still a lot to do, but at least halfway done.


I decided  the only way this was going to get framed was to put it in a hoop. So I did. Doesn't look bad and about ten minutes of effort.

Airport Food

We had a meal at the Munich airport on our way home from Naples. It was far too expensive. This meal was over $60.

Most Of A Bird

I have most of a bird now. He needs wings. He's been my daily for a bit.


I now have one more ornament done after only a couple of sessions. It was a bit hard to get the diagonals placed, but it worked.

Cozyblue January

Pretty pattern for January. I need more time.

Moldovan Vodka

We found the good stuff in Naples.

Coming To The Eyes

My bad wolf is about to have eyes. It's about a third of the way done now.


My owl has eyes now. The inner part is coming along quickly.

Cammomiles Framed

I finally framed these and they're now hanging on my wall.

Pizza In Naples?

By the time we left Naples, I was tired of pizza. We ate a lot of it because there wasn't much other choice. At least there was fresh mozzarella to make up for it.

All Flowered Up

Another Sweetheart Tree sampler done. I'll probably get it framed the same way I did the last.

Ink And Color

This was my tropical ornament that I gifted at Christmas. Time to make more.

Naples Fast Food

Andreas won this particular food chicken game. The calzone was better than the burger.

Back To The Garden

The Victorian Garden is back in the rotation after a break of a couple of months.

February ZenPop

Cute little space stuff, including a nice ruler. Off to write more...
