Sherry Pence promised a bonus pattern to those of us who finished the TIAS. The pattern turned out to be for two train cars attached to the locomotive. So now my Piccadilly Express is complete. Toot, toot! :-)
We were instructed to start the TIAS with two fully-loaded shuttles. I had to do a shoelace trick for the last wheel, but then there was juust enough thread to finish the two train cars!
