My father has started the Gift of Bob Byerley. He must make him sideways as it fits otherwise with no possibility at his embroidery stand. So he has all the characters have to adjust. But after all these changes he started. You can see a chest and a hand of the boy. Very nice to see it appear this way.

After the Madonna is it, to get used to one another Christmas project. It was for me really not sure yet what I want. This Christmas sock is a middle ground for something greater. I also love the Sleigh Ride by Morrissey. The sock is fun to make though. This sock is the Sapphire of Cari Buzaik.

A few years ago I made this ballerina from Margaret Sherry. Never framed. But I had to go with the Train to the framer so I have taken this right with me. I think it's become very sweet.

We hebben gelijk de Madonna bij de lijstenmaker achtergelaten, en naar ik hoop ook een mooie lijst uitgezocht. Deze komt pas in het nieuwe jaar terug omdat de lijstenmaker aan het eind van het jaar twee weken dicht gaat. Nou ja, ik hang haar gewoon nog in het nieuwe jaar een tijdje in de kamer.
Well, this morning we went to the framer... Dil Sanne could pick out the color of the frame and it turned out red, with a wooden touch. it is very beautiful.
We left the Madonna by the framer and I hope we picked out a frame that suit. This will be back in Januari becaus the framer closes at the end of the year for two weeks. No problem I will hang it in the livingroom for a few weeks in the new year.

De lijstenmaker heeft gebeld, hij vertelde dat de Train of Dreams klaar was. Morgen gaan we die eerst ophalen, en dan neem ik de Madonna met me mee om een lijst uit te zoeken. Natuurlijk laat ik gauw zien hoe de trein is geworden. Ik ben zelf ook heel nieuwsgierig.
Last week it was too cold to be outside. I have finished the Madonna. With the last stitches my thoughts went out to another Christmas project. I think it will be a Christmas stocking from Cari Buzaik (Sapphire).
The framer has called, he said that the Train of Dreams was framed. Tomorrow we get that first. I will take the Madonna with me to search out a beautiful frame for it. Of course I will show how the train has become. I am also very curious.

It started this early morning with snow. We had to go on the road. First take care of the kittens of our son Yuri and other family visits. And a journey to the city. It has not stopped snowing till we were at home at five. The garden looked beautiful!!!

Well, my dad is starting the last row of pages. I have a suspicion that at the end of December he is on his way to finish it. A small guess......
