March TUSAL, and the newest family member...

TUSAL time again! Not all of my orts went into the jar this month, as when I stitch away from home I just bin them. Still, a decent addition to the jar. Yes, those are knitting needles....winter is on it's way!

And as promised, a picture of my piano, AKA the newest member of the family!

We're refurbishing the bench, which it why it looks a bit wonky. Some previous owner had broken the hinges, but rather than fix it they rather bafflingly sealed the whole bench shut. Pete prised it open and replaced them with - appropriately enough - a single piano hinge. Next job is to re-cover it. It's already been re-covered once but the fabric is looking quite old and tired. I've bought some very pretty red shantung and trim to do it with - pics to follow once it's done!
