Over the holidays I became a bit of an Ebay fanatic. I was in search of plastic canvas kits created by Dick Martin who is very well known in the plastic canvas "community". Back in the day when plastic canvas was a popular craft his patterns were a must have. Somewhere along the way, between having six children, making multiple moves and a divorce I rid myself of all my crafting wares. It wasn't until I remarried that I was encouraged to take back up my crafting hobbies. And now I have more than I did before!
Oh yeah, so back to my Ebay fanaticism. 😉 I remembered seeing this series of kits called Martinsville. There was a Christmas themed one and a Spring/Easter 'ish' one. Well I decided to begin my hunt for the Christmas version, and I found them.....except one.....the choo choo train. There are 12 in all so 11 is better than none I guess. But then, I'm not giving up hope either. LOL
Even though the holidays or over and the new year has begun I thought it would be fun to sit down and begin doing some of my plastic canvas projects. This way I have plenty of time to just chill while I work on them. Much like cross stitch this is a craft that can take a while to complete.
So I started this set by stitching the church. I love nativities so it was only natural that I began with this one.
Now I just have to decide which one to do next.
