Train of Dreams Week 5

Train of Dreams Week 5

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 I’m currently on.  I’ve been parking as I go but got into a bit of a pickle as I went from page 2 down to page 11 with a couple of miscountings .  I haven’t totalled up how many stitches I’ve actually done this week but I know it’s going to be a lot, I spent so many hours sitching I had a sore shoulder and stiff neck.  I do get up every so often and have a stretch and a stroll around as well as finding and fussing grumpy cat.  Poor grumpy cat he loves having us around, he likes to know where we are, but he gets so tired when we have the week off work because he wants to be with us rather than getting a proper sleep.  He’s napping now but he did have a grumble when I turned the light on.

Also went for a visit to hobbycraft this week and got some threads ready for another couple of projects as well as a really lovely book on painting fairies and mermaids, I really must find some time this weekend to do some drawing.

I mainly concentrate now on Heaven and Earth cross stitch designs - with several projects on the go at any one time. Also often found knitting shawls and socks, papercrafting. Easily distracted by new cross stitch patterns. Slave to a tyrannical black n white cat called Yuen.

    Oh I give in, I will have to start this one, your’s is so lovely. I have the pattern,I have the fabric the only thing stopping me is that I have a load of others on the go but it looks such fun to stitch.
