Well, here it is, the start of a new, and hopefully better (economically) year.
Work continues on the Birth Sampler. I have added the coal tender and put coal in it with some Kreinik black braid...makes it a little shiny like real coal. The month is done, of course as I needed that for the placement of the Red Car which also has a bit of glitz with silver braid bumpers. Next comes the taxi cab...should be stitched this afternoon watching the Rose Bowl.
More photos to come................Grandma
