Well I don't have the virus yet! Tony is much improved, thank you for all your good wishes. He was able to help me in the garden for a while this evening, once things had cooled down a little. We got up to 29.9 C today. We could do with some more days like that to help ripen the chillies.
The plants are laden with huge fruit but it is all green. I picked some yesterday to use in a relish. Nine jars of lovely relish made and stashed away.
My two days off work are done, amid the chores, relish making, the gardening and looking after Tony I was able to sit and stitch for a good while on both days and made some great progress on St Nick.
Here he is last time I took his photo.
And this is how he looked when I put his cover on 15 minutes ago.
I'm almost done with the two pages that make up the centre of the chart.
I feel that I had a very successful couple of days stitching. I'm glad to get the garland done, there were lots of colour changes in there and there is more of the same to come as I stitch more toys and gifts in his sack.
Back to work tomorrow, but hopefully I'll make time for a few stitches too.
