Progress on my monster

I suppose saying that I have a long way to go is an understatement! Obelesques are decidedly boring to stitch, but that one is only two colors, and I at least know where those two colors are in my box. Next week I will show you my box of threads and why knowing where those two colors are is a blessing.

Happy Tuesday!

Mary Ann's canvases...

for her twin granddaughters:

There are other, unpromised pieces that you might consider:

Sweet donkey and friend from Nenah Stone.

"Temptation", again from Nenah.

One of three new socks for the budget-minded!

PETEI ornaments!
Ornaments for the budget-minded!


I had kind of a nervous night last night after hearing of the downed Egyptian airliner. When you have a family member traveling there, a bit of anxiety sets in. My son David is returning this afternoon from Romania where he had a short work assignment at a NATO base. In any event, he was there long enough to fall in love with a local, who is flying to the US this afternoon on a separate flight.  The one with the large ears is BEAR.

Randi's Secret Vice

It's a secret no more! I'm publishing progress on a long term project from which I will need to take some breaks as it is very intense. It is so intense that if I work on it after dinner for a while, I go to bed exhausted. Actually, I am starting to get used to it and it is not nearly as bad as when I first started it. This is a counted cross stitch kit from Thea Gouverneur and it is "ROME". We will start a pool for when people think I might finish it. (Just kidding!) Next week I will post a picture of how the finished piece will look.
