QS Dragon Soul-New Start

I purchased Dragon Soul QS and Butterfly Keeper QS. I had most all of the floss for the Dragon QS so I have started it first. This is my fourth start on this. I'm doing it on 28ct. which is new to me (I'm also working on a small that will be my first with 28). I finally found if I do 1x1 full cross(with a pair of readers) it works out good. I just got a new lapstand to try. I found a Morgan Lap Stand at Hobby Lobby,they are also non-slip. And I have found they work really well. I can now stitch 2-handed and I'm moving right along-can't wait to get this in it. Guess I could work on it tomorrow and work on Citrine on the weekend.
I love checking out everyones progress on their projects. I don't always have time to post comments. Three year olds are so much fun. I can get about 3 e-mails checked before she wants to do something with me-no matter how I try to distarct her with something else. But if we're sitting there watching Clifford or Super Why she'll let me stitch sometimes I get a good hundred stitches in.
Happy Stitching.
I've been trying to post the progress pic but it keeps putting it above this one. But if you look real close you can see the difference. I think my next HAED I'm just using regular blending filament I don't like the braid it's a little thick.
HAEDI figured it out woo-hoo for me. Now I'm working on the Citrine for the themed SAL weekend at HAED,plus I worked on this some on Friday so I can count them both in that one. Thanks for looking.

Awesome start! Love the soft color palette:) Sometimes it takes us a while to get comfortable on these long pieces, but you'll get there!
Hope you like your new lapstand. I always put some felt or batting material between scrolls and fabric so it makes it more taut.
...you probably already knew that though:)
