Evening Star by Heritage

I've also worked quite a bit more on The Evening Star train for my husband (see earlier picture), although it's slow going! I'm working on the backstitching, and believe me it's work! Not only were there 1/2 height and 1/2 width cross stitches in the piece, it's also a challenge to get the backstitching in the right place. There is a separate backstitching chart (which helps) but it's still slow going placing the stitches. I can only do so much at a sitting before I have to switch to something else. I probably won't publish another picture until it's finished, I guess I'm over half way through with the b/s.

I've done lots of those Heritage kits so I know what you mean about all the fractional stitches. They're OK on evenweave but I'd hate to try them on aida.
