Project Updates

I have been busy these past few days working on those pesky PHD's (projects half done). Slowly but surely I can see some progress.

First up the cross stitch project.

The arm of the gown is now done!! I have moved on to working on some more of the cloak. Hopefully when I post next week you will see even more of a change.

Next the rug for Kris's Christmas present.

I have made enough cord to start the solid gold brown colour off. I am hoping to even have more done (a couple of rounds anyway) next week as well. Things are moving along nicely and if I can keep up the pace I have set myself I will definitely be done by Christmas.

No progress on the sewing front however, which makes me a bit sad. Tomorrow I have to hem some drapery panels for a friend, so perhaps a bit of sewing for myself is in order.

Tonight I made Moussaka with eggplant from our garden. Nothing better than eggplant fresh from a garden!

Here it is before putting it in the oven.

And here it is waiting to be served.

It looks a bit overdone here, but really the darker patches were a lovely golden brown. There is enough leftover for another meal. Probably on Friday which switches my menu around a little bit.

Everybody have a wonderful evening.

God bless.


  1. Jackie, Your angel cross stitch is really beautiful.

  2. Thank you so much. I am enjoying working on it so much that I dread those cloudy, dark days when I can't.

    God bless.
