Taj Mahal and Orchids

I had a crazy last week and as a result was really tired every night had didn't get very much stitching done. The weekend was better and here is the result:


I'm almost there!!! And when I get to this point, the little engine is chugging energetically along and if all goes well, this will be finished inside of a week!!!! WHEEEEEEE!!!

I took some orchid pics for my parents over the weekend and they're so beautiful that I just had to share them with you guys:

Not sure what the name of this one is. It's a hybrid from an orchid grower.

Phaelonopsis & Dendrobium

A view of the orchids from our kitchen.

So exciting to be so close to a finish! And it is going to be a gorgeous one.

Wow! How gorgeous and your just about done! The orchids are beautiful. I wish I had a green thumb but it just wasn't meant to be. I think it's because I have more patience with stitching. :)
