Handsy

My little green frog has a hand and a half now. 

 

Making the Rods

One rod done and the rest visible. Plus a round one almost complete. 

 

Done and Dusted (Not)

 

I finished another Lizzie Kate design. Not sure what I am going to do with it once it's framed.

One Corner Rounded

On to start the second side, and I have one fence backstitched.



 

Used the Smoker

So we got smoked chicken for dinner. It was good.

 

Shoes!

Bought shoes from Portland Leather.

 

Another Sampler Framed

One more sampler framed and ready to give away.

 

Andreas' Krakow Pics



Views of Krakow from Andreas. I was not on this trip...

Filling a Wing

My first wing is taking shape.

 

Leaves Before Eyes

More leaves on the left done before I start in on red panda eyes again.

 

Making a Mirror

The mirror with the clocks is well and truly started now.

 

Still Tailing

Just a few bits of the tail to get done before going on to the peahen and finishing page four. So very close to it.

 

Framed Pink Sampler

I framed it and it's now hanging in the house.


 

World Series Swag

We had to get World Series swag when the Rangers won it for the first time ever. And I use it every day.

 

New Year's Meal

We had raclette for our big New Year's meal. It was a good way to start off the year.

 

Not My Food

Andreas took photos of the food they ate in Krakow. I stayed behind to work. This is from the Green Cupboard. I had eaten there before; it's good.

Snacks from Rachel

Rachel sent me all these snacks from Boston. Thank you so much! They're great.





 

Bound and Received

Betsy also quilted this one for me, and I bound it. It's now on Leonora's bed on a regular basis. She loves it. Success!

 

All Quilted Up

My mother in law Betsy quilted this with her machine for me. It's going to make a great blanket when I put the binding on. Thank you!

 

Folding Over

One more leaf almost done and another folding over to the right. It will be the next one filled.

 

Two Golden Sides

These large overlapping cross stitches at least work up fast.

 

Little Mitten Done

It's definitely not blue, but it's done and ready to make into an ornament.

 

One Day the Skirt Will Be Done

That day is not today. Today I just got a bit more of it completed.

 

Konspira Restaurant

When we went to Wroclaw, we managed to get a table at Konspira Restaurant. The theme was interesting and the food delicious.













 

Organ and Surround

The Oliwa church is noted for its superior organ. Didn't get to listen to it, but it's large. The rest of the church is so pristine inside.

Hair or Headdress?

I think the headdress looks like long, blond hair. Maybe it will get better with everything added.
