I'm sorry about the oval cropping, but the photo program on this computer does it that way. BTW, the right side is not torn...it's just the sunlight from the window in my room. The piece is stitched in DMC on 28ct evenweave with bits of Kreinik braid (black for the coal, and silver for bumpers, grills, etc). The Taxi is an adaptaion of a Mercedes (I think) car, and as I said, the truck is my own contraption. The stripe on the truck is stitched in rice stitch (over 4) with an ombre thread which gives it a modern flow.
Now I can comfortably get back to stitching the Bear Christmas stocking for one of the granddaughters! More on that in a few days.
