WIP Wednesday: Almost finished!

I am now back in Budapest!  I flew in about 10 AM this morning and slight of the Danube river was beautiful from the air with all of the bridges crossing the river.  Unfortunately, I didn't take any pictures to show you.

I do have pictures from when I went to Opusztaszer (a Hungarian national park with a pioneer village in it among other things) with a couple of friends last spring.  One thing we saw was this wind mill which was used to grind grain.  It amazing to see all of the wooden parts inside that made the wind mill work. 

Now you may be wondering how all of this relates back to WIP Wednesday?   It does because while I was their I decided to make my own souvenir embroidery.  Now this might look like it belongs on FO Friday, but it is not quite finished yet because it still needs to be washed and blocked (I am also so excited to show everyone that I can't wait until Friday):
