Simple Temari

I think this looks pretty elegant. 


Bits of Vines

The beeskep is almost done, and it's time to work on the painting.


Make Stuff May 2024 #24: Sunrise Greenhouse by Nora Corbett

A somewhat big project start, but I didn't do many this time. I deserve it.


Two Wingtips

I've reached the top of both wings. Time to fill them in by working downwards.


A little finished gift is winging its way to the US.


Needlepointer Box

This is the latest box from The Needlepointer. I have -no- idea what I am supposed to do with the "tulip pen holder" (yellow plastic). Everything else will get used, at least.


Dharma Fabric

Fabric for backing things.


Little Lake at Nieborow

This little lake was right near the mansion. Andreas has some neat drone footage. It was quite pretty.

Make Stuff May 2024 #10: Starburst by Textured Treasures

An interesting piece of needlepoint to do. It's got quite a bit more than this, though.


Make Stuff May 2024 #5: Ring of Flowers by cozyblue handmade

This should be a fairly quick stitch to finish soon.


Make Stuff May 2024 #29: The Spirit of Christmas by Ink Circles

Whoever else thought of wine openers as a Christmas theme? Not me.


Make Stuff May 2024 #7: Red Wild Mushrooms by Cottage Theme

Little mushrooms to make into a big ornament, I think. Should be pretty quick to stitch.



My mitten is mittened and ready to hang on a tree.


Midnight Robin Framed

I think I framed this fairly well. Now it just needs to be hung up.


Zenpop May

Lots of stuff commemorating sakura time in Japan this time.


Nieborow Gardens

A pillar in a field commemorating a battle, and flowers and trees all around a large area. We went in April, so lots of daffodils.

Look at Those Eyes

Red panda eyes stare cutely at you.


Make Stuff May #22: Pretty in Pink by Anne-Marie Anderson-Mayes

Found in an old Needlepointers magazine and using my stash to make this. We'll see how it turns out.


Make Stuff May #8: Pink/Teal Onion Mini Bauble by Eye Candy Art

This is another of the ornaments series. I have one finished, yay! And I have this one well started. They tend to stitch up quickly.


Make Stuff May #31: Peacock Pin Cushion by Cottage Garden Samplings

I think the photo is a bit more saturated than the colors in person, but I believe this is going to look fantastic when I get it done.



My lunation is all ready to hang, and it is hanging in my dining room now.



This place is about an hour outside of Warsaw and has this beautiful building. Unfortunately, though we had a ticket to get into the building, we couldn't find the entrance.


All Set in the Field

Little house in the wildflowers is all set to hang up.


Random Lego Gift

Thank you dear.

Time for the Peahen

This little peahen is about to get some love.


A Definite Hat

My nutcracker has his hat in place.


Cute Little Star

Little circles behind a star. I think this came out very pretty. It will be used in an exchange.


Make Stuff May #30: Nymphalidae Butterfly by Riolis

Little butterfly kit to be made. Most of the upper left side of the butterfly is stitched.


Little Hoop

Framed my little kogin stitch.


Framed and Gifted


A colleague saw me stitching this and admired it. So I gave it to her once I framed it. She loves it.

Joann Stash

Joann's had a sale on batik fabric, so I bought some.


Gift from Tracy

Tracy sent me this beautiful floss. I may just make the pattern on the card with it.
