Here is the first progress photo for Odessa. I have completed about 2.5 inches. I really like the Cashsoft DK. It's very soft, but shows off the stitches nicely.
This morning, I went to an orchid show. The Fascination of Orchids is being held at the Orange County fairgrounds for the first time. I wasn't crazy about the change of location. The booths were too close together and the aisles too narrow. The older I get, the smaller my "personal space" gets. Today, that space was invaded a few too many times. and leaving was the only cure. The displays were great and I took quite a few photos.
I only bought one orchid--Dendrobium kingianum "Yoko" The display smelled great and my plant is covered with buds. Hopefully, there will soon be open blooms to photograph.
