Update on Thomas the Tank and Frosty :)

These past two nights I've taken off to do some much earned stitching.  Yesterday I made a note of what projects I've had on the go these last few months and thought it about time I got a wriggle on with some of them. Tonight I managed to finish turning Frosty the Snowman into a little hanging ornament and have also done more on the border of Thomas the Tank.

Frosty the Snowman is stitched on 18ct Red aida.
Around the 3 sides of the ornament, every other stitch has a seed bead attached.

All I have left to do on Thomas now is the bottom part of the border, he can then be washed, dried, ironed and framed to put on my little boys wall.  I hope to have Thomas finished in my stitching session tomorrow night :)


  1. Your stitching is great... well done.

    Love Thomas - looks like you have put your son's initials on the top train carriages - what a great idea!

  2. Yes I put the initials T S R on the carriages of the little blue train at the top. I did forget to say that it was stitched on 14ct white aida in DMC threads.

  3. Well done Stephie! I wont show Thomas to Mark otherwise he would be on his way to your house ... rofl :-)

    Love your snowman Ornie too xxx

  4. Thomas is looking wonderful, Tristan sure is going to love him.
    The ornament turned out really well. Your tree will look terrific with it on at xmas.

  5. Thank you ladies :) Thomas is now finished, so will take a pic of him tomorrow now :)
