Yes, thankfully my ears have begun to slowly improve so I have been able to pick up a needle again without too many problems.
So, instead of working on a UFO (or WIP as the case may be!!), I decided to have a play with some little stitcheries i bought from Jenny of Elefantz. These work into a four inch square block. I have not decided exactly what to do with them; a needlecase, or two, was one idea but that is the easy answer, and how many do we really need? I may piece them together and do somethng else, a table runner, maybe a cover for my sewing machine. These are only little so it wont want to be anything too big or they will get lost in the size.
The rest are here, although I took this photo yesterday and one of these is now almost finished.
The other stitching I did last night, until the light got too bad, was to work on the blue tablecloth. After trying to decide about what to add to it, if anything, I did decide to do some leaves, which I think will set it off beautifully. It finishes it off. I have only done a couple so here is a sneak peek.
