Train Table Backdrop--Complete!

Yes, I have decided that it's finished! Yay! (And there was much rejoicing.)  I took all the pieces outside and got some pictures, in today's obligingly-not-rainy-but-nicely-overcast weather.

(I think my color balance is just a bit off... a little too blue, maybe?)

It occurred to me that I could add up all the audiobooks I listened to while painting  and figure out how long it took, except that I listened to them while I wasn't painting, too, so that doesn't really work.  I've had this project in the works for two years, but actual painting happened on and off over about fifteen months. (Slightly longer than The Cupboard Under the Stairs.)   Painting at home is complicated.  And now I'm done just in time to take the extra leaf out of the kitchen table so we can make room for a Christmas tree!

And here's the whole thing all stitched together. Eighteen feet long!  I'm not sure exactly when we're going to take it out to Port Orchard and get it set up, but I'll be sure to get pictures of that too.
