This one I did for a friend of the family as she loved to look at my Kio fish.

This was framed and given as a present.

These where done as a present to my Aunt and Uncle, and my cousins wife. I did these as a token gift as my cousin was killed in a read traffic accident.

He had played cricket from the time he could pick up a bat, and was the local teams captain and an all round player excellent bats man and a great bowler. The idea was to give one to my aunt and uncle and the other one to his wife, but once they had seen what I had done they wanted a set each which meant I had to to two more.

I even went to the detail of having the frames made from willow, which as you know is what cricket bats are made from.

I take my hat off to you, very well executed, especially in evenweave.
Where did you get the charts, or are they your own design?
Incidentally, as this is the partwork forum, and I'm right now 3/4 way through Hachette Flying Scotsman, and collecting Mallard - in the stash I have both locos as X stitch charts....
Just need an extra 10 hours in the day.

Hi sojourner.

Thank you for your nice comment.

These are kits by John Clayton for Heritage crafts done on 28 count evenweave fabric.

:laughing-rolling: I also have in my collection the mallard, Scotsman and other loco's in xstich, plus a collection of smaller ones of little shunters. I've got a wide collection of kits still waiting to be done.

I've built the Hachette Scotsman, I've got another one of the Scotsman which I'll build as the Singapore. I didn't collect the Mallard as I have the DJH kit.

As to time in the day, I need loads more. :laughing-rolling:

Snap!! I have done a couple of John Clayton's charts, and of course the locos are his design, too.
I'm just glad that I'm not on fourpence ha'penny a day- about 100 or so stitches per hour are all I can manage. :(
