Well...still not really any stitching going on in my neck (no pun intended) of the woods. :-) My neck is much better. Thanks so much for all the get well wishes. I have started working on a finishing project for a small finish I had just before my neck problems. I finished Frech Country - Rabbit by JBW Designs. I am going to finish it into a little hanging pillow with a beaded edge. It is all being hand done and is much more tedious than I originally thought. But...I really like the way it looks. It will take me a while to finish it, but will post pictures once done.

As many of you know, I have been working on Holiday Express by Stardust for almost 4 years. I will admit that I put it down for almost a year of that time after Hurricane Ivan hit this area, but...the rest has been tedious stitching. So much of this project is working with blending filament and we all know what a nightmare that can be. It took 2 1/2 spools of black blending filament for the train!!!! I am on my 2nd spool of yellow blending filament for the windows (of train and stores). The first picture is from January. And the second one was taken 2 weeks ago, right before the neck problems. (sorry for the shadow at the bottom.) I hope to start working on it again in a couple of weeks.

My son's Spring Break starts this weekend and we are off to see Mickey and friends at Disney World.

Your train is beautiful! I'm not familiar with this design. How much stitching is left to do? Can't wait to see your French country rabbit. JBW has the cutest designs.
