The inner base of the Octagonal Box is now complete. It was fun stitching this one with its variety of fish and other sea creatures.
Next step is to cut the pieces of Skirtex and lace each part and only then can assembly begin. Such geometrical precision is beyond me at the moment so I will continue on with my piece of hardanger for now.
My pacemaker replacement went according to plan and after an early start that morning I was home late afternoon in time to ensure the DBEM had a proper dinner! During my convalescence I have done a lot of reading and sleeping but these last couple of days have felt much better and completed a couple of items off the sewing list. The lengthy list of instructions included "Driving is not permitted for two weeks" so I have been walking everywhere and consequently am nearing my 1000km target. 945km as of today and I have until Christmas Day to complete the remaining 55km so all should be well.
I work for a large Government Department. Outside work I enjoy embroidery and stitch mainly traditional pieces of counted work always in Linen and generally with DMC or silks. My other love is reading and I visit the local library nearly every week. My elderly mother lives with me. She is increasingly deaf and quite blind and in this blog is known affectionately as the DBEM.
