|Christmas Train Wheels|
There are so many categories for needlepoint....Christmas, Halloween, standups, ornaments, pillows and so on. I have a new one.
The WHY DIDN'T I FINISH THIS WHEN I KNEW WHAT I WAS DOING????? category. It's almost that season again and this year I would really like to work on finishing my Raymond Crawford Christmas train. Here is one of the wheels. That's a smooth spider in the center. Why oh why didn't I do the last 3 wheels when it was oh so easy and I had the same tension in my stitching??? I think it's been 2 years since I took this class and while I keep up pretty well while the class is going on, when I get to the last lesson and actually finishing...I am a disaster.
Here's a few more glimpses of parts of the train that look almost FOREIGN to me
I have to recreate the stitch in the tree for the wreaths in the windows of the third car :-(
And here are some bows....did I actually do that????
