Today I have been off work after a night with terrible earache, cough fever and general malaise.   This morning the doctor told me that I am unbalanced because of a middle ear infection!  

So I have been lying on the sofa, drinking plenty of hot drinks and reading books -  I finished

and am now part way through  
Both are completely different styles of books but have kept me entranced for the day.
I have made a new start too -  a self designed blackwork "etui".  
Some time ago my boss gave me this cute little tin which I can just see with an inset pincushion and a tiny pair of gold scissors.  
The fabric is Graziano Nuvo Ricamo 38 Count and I am stitching in DMC 310.   Later I will add some gold to spice it up.   Hopefully I can transfer my ideas into reality.  
The HD3QEM has cooked dinner so I'm off to enjoy that.  Have a good evening everyone.


  1. I am looking forward to seeing your etui develop. I am sorry to hear that you are unwell, earache can be so debilitating.
