Slow progress

I'm still slogging along with Blackstone Fantasy. It seems like I spent the bulk of the train ride home yesterday ripping out. That wasn't the case of course, but it sure seems like ripping takes a lot longer than stitching! I'm starting to get a rhythm to this piece and it wasn't as hard today. This is turning out to be a tough piece to stitch on the train. There are nine pages (!) of charts and I have to switch back and forth between pages frequently. And I have to re-hoop the piece just as often. And I'll be honest, I'm concerned with the lack of color fastness of the threads. It the dye is coming off on my hands what will it do to the linen long term?
