Another Small Finish, Hooray for Trains!

Good Morning!

I hope you are all well. Over the past week I have worked on a couple of projects and I am please to say and even managed another small finish from my Crazy January Challenge.

First, I worked some more of Bothy Threads Sew Dinky Gingerbread house.



As you can see I now have the outline of the Christmas tree and a small orange present waiting underneath it just waiting to be opened! :) I am still enjoying this one very much so fingers crossed I should have more to show you this week.

Last Thursday I took a trip back down to Yorkshire as over a year ago I bought tickets to see John Bishop with my Mum for her birthday, little did I know that in 12 months time I would be living in Scotland!

Our View, before the show began!
I have to say he was very funny and we both enjoyed it, if any of you are near to Leeds he is doing another show at the arena this Thursday (13th), although I don't know if tickets are still available.

The good part of this meant I had a 3 - 4 hour train journey (I go the cheaper route, changing at Carlisle via Settle in case any of you are wondering why it took so long) on my own so it was ideal stitching time! I decided to take one of my smaller projects just for the ease of it, and I was pretty sure I would be able to get near a finish on the journey there and back.


This was the very first project I worked on this year, I only managed to complete the door and it hadn't been touched since. But now it is done, and another off my list! Making it 8/15, however I am not so sure if I will get the rest done in time!

Until next time,

Emma xx

  6. Glad you had a great time. I would enjoy a long train ride too. Your finish is too cute!! Love your WIP as well.

  7. Congrats on the lovely finish !! Good progress on Bothy.

  8. Gorgeous finish..I love trains because you can just get on with things like stitching and knitting. Much nicer and more room than coaches (or at least here in Ireland they are)

  9. Nice progress and very sweet finish :)

  10. Nice progress and adorable finish Emma.


  11. Well done on the nice finish, it is very cute. I wish I could cross stitch on trains, could be the fact that the ones I always get are packed with insane amounts of people.

    Bothy Threads Sew Dinky Gingerbread house looks like it is coming along, excited to see it finished.

  12. Home sweet Home is a great little finish
