Toccata II Finis


Toccata Number Two by The Drawn Thread
Recommended 32 count cream linen
Recommended NPI Silk thread and specialty threads


I finished up Toccato II last night! I can't believe it's finally finished. One down and two to go. :-)

All went well at the dentist this morning - one root taken care of! Now just a crown or two to go and I'll be finished with him for a while. :-) Actually the hardest part about the entire morning was just driving to the dentist seven miles away. I had somewhere around 8 to 10 inches of snow in the driveway and it took forever to dig myself out. And the drive there was horrible as it was still snowing and the plows hardly made a dent in all the snow in the road.

I'm not sure what I'm going to start stitching on next. I'm still working on St. Reatham as my train project (almost finished with the current page) and I know that Drema mailed me the new loose feather yesterday so I'll be getting that package tomorrow. I think I'll work on St. Reatham until the mail comes tomorrow afternoon and then I'll get started on the LF. I also need to finish putting my peacock chair together. All the pieces are are cut out, the boxes put together and the batting has been attached. I just need to start the real work of putting it all together. I'll think I'll make a start at that also this weekend. But I've got a powerful urge to start another large piece to replace Toccato. Either Celtic Sampler or Cirque des Circles. I'm not sure which is calling loudest to be but they are both starting to talk. :-)

Have a great weekend!

Congratulations! Its a beautiful piece. I especially love the tiny motifs across the bottom, they look like they are stitched over 1 thread.
