A to Z challenge: E

When I look on the globe from yesterday post I see that my next stop should be Egypt. Those who followed my posts from last year A to Z challenge know all about my passion for the ancient sites. I have never been to Egypt but I'm planning that trip for the last 7 years or so...

Of course I would love to see the pyramids,
  and sail the Nile,
and try some of the Egyptian cuisine, and much more...

While preparing for the trip I'm reading and trying recipes from

For the stitching part I will work on Egyptian Sampler by TW


I've started this piece a year ago and completely forgot about it. Here is my progress so far


So long my friends,
Evalina

  2. I've been to Egypt in the late 80's. Guards stood around the museum doors with ancient rifles, guarding King Tut's treasure. The pyramids are amazing. I've written several books which include Ancient Egypt. Still Rock Water is the first.

  9. What a fun and interesting challenge! That sampler is absolutely beautiful. Though much more than I could ever take on for a project. I visited Egypt many years ago - be sure to shop in Alexandria -so amazing.

  10. Excuse the spelling meant to say stop not shop...though I guess you can do that too!

    My kindle is always modifying the words I type sometimes its more nuisance then help. ;)

  12. Are you going?
    My neice lived there for two years as her husband worked at the embassey. My sis flew
    over and got to sail the Nile (Poirot style) and see the pyramids. She said there is a
    MacDonalds right in front of the pyramids, can you imagine that? She bought caftans for 2 buck and beautiful Egyptian towel on the cheap.

  14. My in-laws went to Egypt several years ago and really enjoyed it. I love your Egyptian Sampler and you have made great progress. Something I wouldn't stitch though. I'm still trying to get caught up with Good Morning. Its a fun stitch.

  16. I would also love to visit Egypt. To simply set foot and be among all that history would be so divine. The stitch work you have in progress looks great.
