A New Train Update!


I finally have a new train update for the first time since I think March of last year! I have finished all the stitching on the left side of the piece except for the 1/2 stitch mountains that are above all the buildings and the beading (snowflakes & berries on garland/wreath). Both of these things will be the very last things I do. I still have quite a bit of stitching left to do, but feel like I can officially say that I am half way through now. I can see the light at the end of the tunnel, it's a lengthy tunnel, but I can see a light now.

I am still working on my first ornament for the Bride's Tree SAL. Since this is a surprise for my husband I can't much stitching done on it because he has been home during the time I've actually had to sitdown and stitch. Oh, well. I hope to have it done in the next week or so.

I hope everyone is staying warm and dry and getting a bunch of stitching done!

That's such a great design. I've some of their charts in my stash, too. But I never started one of those...
