WIP Wednesday – Cars and a Mystery

I’m actually on time for a WIP Wednesday post! Don’t worry, it probably won’t happen again any time soon. 😉 As I said yesterday, I haven’t been doing much stitching. But, once in a while I do put needle and thread to fabric.

AC Cobra, from Dennis Originals

I’m working on this fabulous red AC Cobra from Dennis Originals for my little guy’s room. Along with Lego and Minecraft, he is totally enamoured with cars. This design is from a really old booklet1 called Transportation Classics 2, which has eight different car designs ranging from a 1931 Mercer all the way up to a Porsche 928 and a classic Camaro. I’m planning on stitching four or five of the designs and framing them in a complementary manner. They will all  be stitched on white evenweave, and I’m using DMC threads.

What is this?

I’m also working (really, really slowly) on my small for this month’s Smalls SAL check-in. As you can see, I have a long way to go. Does anyone want to take a guess as to what it is?

I’ll be back tomorrow with something fun and quite different than my usual. Hope to see you then!

Apparently “really old” is 1989. Where has the time gone?!?

  1. What a great car! DH would probably like one too, that is if I could see the charts anymore, LOL!

  2. The car has been nicely done – it will look shiny and fast when it’s finished. And no, I don’t know where the time has gone, either. It seems only a moment ago I was wrestling with Finals, and now it takes a moment or two to work out just how long ago that was!

    Oh lovely car, one he will treasure.

    1989? No time at all! I still the 90s were 10 years ago…
    I am guessing the segment is a Just Nan mouse or a strawberry pincushion.

    Nice car! As for the mystery, to me it looks like a strawberry-maybe a Just Nan mouse?

    I love that car! Perfect for a little boy’s room but classy enough that he will want to keep it.
