grey day mending

It's overcast and unseasonably warm today so I thought I'd take some time for stitching.
I'm following Jude's lead and putting a much missed breast pocket back on the Magic Invisibility Cloak. At first I couldn't find it, then I remember getting some shmutz on it and setting it aside to be washed.

Alas, it got scooped up in a wash day  frenzy and got pounded as in on a rock at the river with a load of jeans. Some of the damask and linen pieces have slipped their mooring stitches so some decorative and restorative work is in order.



The colors are intense. I like the wheat impression in the yellow fabric. Was that done on the sewing machine?

That embroidery is a piece of Montmellick work from a vintage tablecloth...I cannot tell if it's done by hand (I suspect) or machine.
