Stitch Maynia #6 - Grapevine and Pippins by Melbury Hill

Started a crewel piece for stitch maynia. I want to get more crewel done.

Random Leg

The third frog has a random leg sticking out on the right, so that is what I have started working on to finish him off.


First Washcloth

Trying to use up some of my yarn, so I made a washcloth. Going to make other things, too, as I want to get my stash down.


Farewell Lunch

Didn't manage to take any photos of the food at Mozaik, but the top photos are the dessert. We had a lunch in February 2020 for Juliana, since she was leaving the section.

Snow Buddies


Filling With Wine

This piece, too, has had problems with the spinner. I'd like to get it done.


Hollow Square

I have a hollow square. It's sad. The spinner hasn't been kind to this piece this month.

Little Desserts

Pretty desserts from October 2020. These have to be from Era, which is where I am going today.

Frou Frou Food

This is some food from February 2020. It's either Lisa's restaurant or Gresa. Not sure which. It was well presented, though.


Third Panel Almost

This is so close to being done. I am on the last line or so of the third panel, and the next panel is only a half one.

Picallili by Ink Circles - Work from Home #28 2021

Another Ink Circles start. This one is in a DMC colorway thread. I think it'll look good.


Carol and the Cows

Carol likes cows. She is our cow dog pirate princess.

Bits of the Square

What we saw of Macedonia outside of our hotel. Pretty autumn day.

Stitch Maynia #1 - Mini Sweetheart Tree Sampler by The Sweetheart Tree

This is a small, bookmark sized sampler. I will probably finish it the next time I pick it up. I like it.

Stitch Maynia #2 - High Noon by cozyblue handmade

Not really sure how I feel about this one. Will have to wait to make a true decision.



Andreas found a toad in the road outside our house.


Communist Burgers

The only place we really ate out at was Kolektiv, a burger bar on the square. It was okay, but very communist leaning. I have no idea how entrepreneurs end up with such an ideology. We had to sit outside, which made it a bit wet and windy.

Filling In Pink

I was afraid the darker colors would melt into the light pink, but it looks like not.


Almost Three

So much done on the third frog. It's almost done. I guess I'll go back to the middle next.


April Stitchybox Fabric

I may already have something in mind for this color...

Impromptu Charcuterie

Most restaurants were outdoor seating or take out. Those that were open at all. And it was rainy. What else to do but go to the grocery store and make our own charcuterie plate and play games in the hotel room?

Two Colors

Not so sure about the light green, but too lazy to change it.

Been Kind

I got this all done. It's going to Leonora. I hope she likes it.


Easy Button

All I had to do to finish this Darby Smart necklace was slip on the charm.


Sad Marriott Breakfast

The Skopje Marriott during COVID is a sad place. The business lounge isn't open and they didn't give us any compensation for it being closed. Considering it was a large reason why we picked there, we weren't happy. On top of  that, breakfast was sad. No buffet to choose from. And just ... sad.

Beginning To Brown

Little bits of brown appear as the glass begins to fill with wine.

One More Line

One more line done on this. It didn't come with us to Greece, so it's sitting there pining to get finished.


Leonora got me this lovely gift of mango personal care products. She knows how much I love mango and how it reminds me of Mattie. I took a couple of these things on my current trip to Greece. Thank you, Leonora, for the thoughtful and kind gift.
