First off... WOW! You guys have been stitching up a storm! Gorgeous work - all of it! Kudos to all!
Next, I want to tell you about my excitement. For the Special New Start SAL on the board last week I started Jo Wall's Dragon Charmer. Here's the original:
Now don't throw stuff at me, but I am going to admit that I am not a big fan of Ms. Wall's charts. Her art is lovely, but not usually anything I would want to stitch, with this ONE exception, a dragon, and beautiful blues (my favorite color)! Plus, to tell the truth, they scared me! They looked like so much detail, I figured every other stitch would be a different color, and it would drive me mad. I am happy to report that is not the case. I am really enjoying this one. I started in the upper left corner and got approx. 1400 stitches in so far. Here's what it looks like now:
Stats: 28 ct. Joblean - light blue, DMC Floss, 1 X 1 Full Cross.
For the HAEDless Sal this weekend, I will be working on A Bouquet of Cheryl.
Thanks for looking!
Till next time
