Assisi 3

My second Assisi project is finished. I found this lovely pattern last year and now it was a challenge to make it. I used long-armed cross stitches for the background, cross stitches for the wheels and backstitches for the details and the edges. The train is in the original colours, the background is variegated yarn from my stash. I already have an idea to push this technique in my own direction, so the story is going to be continued.
