I've been working on two pieces this week - one is a model stitch, so can't show it here, and the other is The Hikers.  Progress has therefore been slower, but I'm still on course for finishing The Hikers at the weekend:

I need to frog the extra stitch on the left hand side...but it looks like I need to redo the whole row, due to how I stitched it originally!

I've joined a SAL, through Facebook, to stitch on One Nation.  I have got this in my UFO box, and thought it would give me the incentive to finish it!  The SAL starts on Monday, and this is how it looks now:

I was at the hospital again on Tuesday about my ankle.  I now have a leg brace on for the next 3 weeks:

It seems to support my ankle better than the cast was doing at the end, but I have to take it off at night and this causes pain when I'm moving around in bed...I'm also off work for another 3 weeks, which I'm not too happy about.  I'm usually a very busy person, rarely in the house, and this enforced rest is driving me crazy!

My son is home for the holidays, and my daughter is coming up from Cardiff tonight with her boyfriend to spend Easter with us.  It's going to be a very full house, but then there will be more people to help with things around the house (I wish!).

Happy Easter!

One Nation is going to be lovely, great idea to join the SAL, you could aways join us in the UFO @ NH with a pic each week too!

Lots more stitchy progress for us to see if you are off for another 3 weeks. I hope you are not in too much pain Lynn.

Have a lovely Easter with your family around you.
