IHSW, progress and a finish

This last weekend was IHSW and so I sat on my butt and did just that :)

My starting point


And my finishing point
You can't tell from the pic but I've also back stitched the leaves so the bottom is now complete :)


Last week I worked on Halloween Moon but not much progress was made because I didn't pick it up until Wednesday and you'll see the reason why next.
I should get loads done this week tho because I've sprained my left knee and can barely put weight on it so I'll be spending most of the week with it up although I do have to keep it moving as well which is easy enough to do really when you live alone, no one else is going to feed you or put the kettle on for a brew so I'm up about every hour anyway.


This is the reason Halloween moon wasn't picked up till Wednesday.
I took this with me in the caravan for the 3 Lancs and once again decided to finish it off.
The colours are all as charted but I did make a change.    The centre and corners were designed to have gold leather but I've never been keen on that part of the design so I did Norwich (aka Waffle) stitches instead and I'm much happier with the result

Lovely rose progress, it's so rich looking. The needlepoint design looks good too, I haven't done any type of needlepoint for a while - I find it quite hard on the wrists. Hope your knee improves soon.
