I couldn't wait until the end of the month to post my latest update as I was excited by my own progress. The backstitch has done it's job & really defined the design. There isn't much to do so I just need to stick with & I'll soon have a finish on my hands.
My main stitching day has been a Monday, its the only day that twins are at nursery but next week is half term so they'll be at home & we also have house guests that week so I'm afraid my progress may slow somewhat.
I'm looking forward to picking out my next UFO to tackle.
Happy Stitching All

I did these over the weekend. I'm pretty happy with them -- they are my first attempt at this. I have a whole stack of these and I figure if I can get one done every week or so, I'll have little things hanging all over my house. Wish me luck!

(we'll just not talk about the other four or five rows to still do :))
Here is the whole piece:
And here is the section I am currently working on in a bit more detail (forgive the blurriness).
A few people have asked what this looks like as a whole. On my blog there is a picture of it at the top of the left sidebar. You can check it out here:
Thanks for all your past and future comments!

The thread arrived from Janlynn so I've been back stitching like crazy. The horse body is now finally completed just some back-stitching on the mane and tail. I've been catching up on the border as well so that it will all hopefully finish together. When all the main pattern is completed I have to go back to do the blending filament on all the fans (I really am not looking forward to that bit.)
Thanks again for all your support it's helped such a lot. Happy stitching to you all

The person who it is intended for is making my worklife quite difficult at the moment, so I have very little incentive to finish it.
I will add a picture tomorrow.
Just when you are unhappy in a place, you don't work on related things as they make you more so.

I think I've maybe finished just an inch on this piece in the last month. I've been busy working on my Christmas stitching, so this poor piece has sunk to the bottom of the stitching basket again...SOMEDAY I will finish this! (I hope, I hope!) :)

Here is dragons to date:
And here is a close up of my latest stitching closer up on page 4:
Slow and steady wins the race. Or so I keep telling myself (and my uncle who I'm stitching it for). ;)
