WIP Wednesday: A Very Merry Christmas Town

One of my ongoing projects is 'A very merry Christmas town' by The Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery. I've mentioned it in a few blog posts and shown my progress. Now it's time to show a bit more!
The progress on this one compared to other stitching projects I have, is quite slow. I can't point at one reason, but I think there might be a few...

One thing is of course that I have been crocheting a lot instead of stitching. I really got the crochet bug at the moment!

This project will also require metallic thread. A LOT of metallic thread. I have never been good friends with metallic threads!

I am waiting to the very end with stitching the metallic thread, so I can wash the piece first. It has been on a frame since I started it back in 2015, so it will really need a wash! And it is a perfectly good excuse :) 

I started stitching on this project again last week and I got a bit further with the Christmas tree shop. The bulbs on the roof all have colours and the candy cane fencing is slowly taking shape.

I also had a look at the candy shop and realised (well, it was a bit obvious) that I miss quite a bit on the sign.

The pattern was originally in four parts. Each building is in a pattern part and the last part will be a banner underneath with 'Christmas Town' written on it. I've decided to finish up the parts in order. I think it's going to be easier if my stitching is a bit more organised than "I think I'll do this now".

I will stitch more over the next few weeks, so hopefully I will have an update on it soon! :)
