Santa's Sleigh, an update

Fall has finally arrived.  I had to turn the heat on yesterday and we're supposed to get our first hard freeze tonight.  My DH says we're going to get whatever we plan to save out of the garden after we get home tonight.  Since I've already picked tomatoes, it shouldn't be too bad.  Just peppers to go.

I don't have much to update this time.  I'm still working on Santa's Sleigh by Nora Corbett and since my stitchy bug has made a strong reappearance, I've been making pretty good progress.




I've started on the packages since the last picture but I haven't taken another one yet.  Beading will be done after the stitching is completed.

It's been a bit

So some things happened which left me wondering how, why, etc.  But I don't want to go there.  

My stitching is kind of limping along right now.  I've only made a little progress in the last month.

Here's as far as I made it on Irish Chain before I got tired of dealing with the fiddly color changes with the Kreinik silk.


I've had Nora Corbett's Santa's Sleigh in the new start pile for a while.  Fabric is Wicked Garden from Colour Cascade Fabrics.
