Train Progress

Train Progress

Had a week off work this week.  Not to go anywhere just to have a week away from work, time to relax and get on with the things I enjoy.  So most of the week has been spent with my stitching and getting lots done one Train of Dreams.  I finished page 10 which was just a part page underneath page 1 and decided to work in columns down the length of pages 2 and 11.  More detail of the train is beginning to emerge, most of the chimney is in and I’m just about to finish it off in the column...

Spring is here

I’ve been enjoying catching up on Fairy Tales this week I finished page 4 and got onto page 5 which means I’m now about 45% of the way through.  There’s a lot more of her hair on this page though so it’s lots of changes of dark browns and it can be a bit more difficult to see the difference between them all.  Parking and working in columns really makes a difference for me.  But I did forget to park the colours in the next pages and finished them off instead there...

Update on the Train

Update on the Train

Last week turned out to be a bit busier than I had planned so not so long to spend on the Train but I still made good progress and I’m over halfway through page 10 (which is the second page I’m stitching).  The moon now has a face and is the bit which took most of the time with all the colour changes on it.  The train tracks are just behind the moon, and in the remaining three columns I’ll be putting in more of the train.  I’ve got a week of doing another picture before...
