The knitted fireplace is just about done - all that is needed now is a black backing as the flue, a grate with fire in it and perhaps a set of pokers etc.  All?  That's quite a bit really, but the donkey work is done and I quite enjoy making the fiddly bits and pieces.

The tiles were knitted individually and sewn in place - thank goodness they fit without the aid of maths - then a darker blue 'grouting' was embroidered around them.  Note to self, next time, if there ever is a next time, do the embroidery before attaching the hearth as it is very tricky negotiating the corners.

Still not been able to get near my paints this week - too much to do around the house.  However, after de-Christmassing the place yesterday which took three hours (three hours - how depressing was that!) I should have a free afternoon today at last.  I can't wait!

What about the bits for the mantle shelf ?
How on earth did you do that ?
