Whilst the housework was being done, the batteries were charging, so the camera is now fully operational again.
Over the weekend, the second strip was completed, and I'm 3/5ths of the way through a third. I may have enough to get another strip, which means I'll be having another blanket, rather than a cushion. This time, I shall probably leave it without the flower embellishments, so it would be more attractive as a gift for a baby boy.
Another two months of accounts have been done, so there are two more to go. All being well, I'll get to the end of those this morning, I have to wait around for a mechanic to arrive to repair a chip in the windscreen, so I may as well make the most of the time. At this rate, my sewing table will be cleared for action later this week.
