Train a'coming!

Yes, there is light at the end of the tunnel!  The deadline for Beetle is Sunday next - March 4th.  I'm not going to make it - at least not to the point of being framed, wrapped and presented.  But I'm going to be a lot closer than I previously thought that I would be.  I may even have got to the point of taking it to the framer!

This is the only picture that you are going to get this week, because Beetle is the only piece that I have been working on.  The car itself is complete, apart from some backstitch in places.  If you look at the bottom right, you will see that I have started filling in the shadow around the right front tyre.  That's all that's left - the shadow and some backstitch.  Then it will be a quick trip through the washing machine in a pillow case, a close encounter with an iron and then off to the framer.  All being well and a quiet week, I may make it to the framer on Saturday afternoon.  Keep your fingers crossed for me.

Once the Beetle goes to the framers, I will go back to working on Carnation, Lily, Lily, Rose with the aim of finishing page 1.  That will be my priority.  The Cat will become my Sunday morning piece and the piece that I take to Patchwork Group.

In other news, I still have nothing to say - no interview date, no scarves to show.  I got very little sleep last night, despite going to bed about 9.30pm, so will call it a day now, go and make tomorrow's lunch and try for a better night than last night.
