This will be very colourful! Since this photo I have added three yellow fish and have my eye on the octopus next.
But I had to scratch the Hardanger itch and have started a doily. The foundations were laid with no reverse stitching so I am feeling mighty pleased with myself.
I made one of these doilies some years ago in a very well run SAL, Confetti of Hardanger from Bee's Needlework. This time I am stitching for a 70th birthday early next year so hope all goes as well for the second attempt.
Two projects on the go? Well thereby hangs a tale. I was told that I'd been placed on the wait list for a pacemaker replacement and fully expected that to take some months given the state of the public health system. Instead, I received a phone call last Monday to say they had booked me in for the next Monday so a frantic week at work ensuring everything was up to date, a few lists to ensure that all home chores were accounted for, a couple of garments cut out and prepped ready to sew and after the Last Supper tonight nil by mouth until bright and early tomorrow morning.
The worst thing about all this? Driving is forbidden for two weeks!!
The best thing? Plenty of time for stitching, reading, sewing and probably some walking as I have only 80km to go to reach the 1000km target.
