Thank you for all your nice comments about ATC :) Louise is delighted with it. I've now made a start on Night Train for little Pete. I'm not using the recommended fabric (which is Navy) because I'm being such a good little SOSer that I decided to use something from my stash instead. This is Spruce (I think - it's been so long since I bought it, it could be anything! :-b) but I think it works for a nighttime scene. Peter has been sitting cuddled up next to me watching me stitch it, and getting excited every time something recognisable appears. I don't think I'm going to be able to take a break from this one! LOL This is one day's stitching -
The chart is proving a bit of a pain. It's in colour on glossy card, which means I can't make a working copy (I don't have access to a colour copier) and the only thing I can use to mark it off is a highlighter pen. I hate scribbling all over the original chart, but what can you do? I've never been a fan of coloured charts anyway, for some reason I find black and white much easier to follow.
