Dragons Page Complete!

I finished this last week, and somehow it slipped my mind to post it here. It's been busy.
But here it is... the next page finish in Dragons!!!

I have one more page to complete that row and want to get it done by the end of the year. I have averaged about one page per 4 months this year so should be right on track.

Thanks for all your comments and support on this one! :)

New UFO: Halloween Fairy

My new UFO to work on is Halloween Fairy by Mirabillia.
I started stitching this in 2008 and i think it became a UFO because I need to get the chart enlarged as it is too small for me to stitch from. This will be happening on Friday and then work shall commence! I have already frogged out her arm because I think the shading of the variegated thread looked weird so I'm going to give it another go. Plus my fractionals are much neater now!
I will be working on this design as well as Halloween Short Stack by Waxing Moon Designs as I've started this one to keep me stitching until Friday when I can access a photocopier!!

Finally, a Dragons update

I know it's been awhile. But that means I have some good progress.
I have been really concentrating on Dragons in the last few weeks. And a stitching retreat on the weekend really helped me get there.
I plan to have this page done by the end of the month.
Here is the piece to date:

Water Games is ....


Not been framed properly yet but its my mum's birthday soon and I won't have time to frame it properly before then so its just been put in quickly so she can unwrap it :)

I BELIEVE. (Honestly) all done

Well how about this for a quicker than my usual finish? I finished this while at my sister's on a short visit. I can tell you all that there are stacks and stacks of French Knots in this and when I first started to do them I was pretty rubbish at them and took them all out. Guess what!!! I've really improved. When you see him for real he sparkles A LOT. Yippee

I now have to go back and start looking for my next unfinished surprise. Not sure yet what it'll be.
Thanks again for your support.

A New Project

Greetings to all! I'm Bekca from The Stitching Lion and this is my very first post on the I've Started So I'll Finish SAL. I'm trying to complete a design by Enchanting Lair called "Always" Here is my very small progress so far . . .

I started this project in September last year and it hasn't been out much at all. I think probably because it has lots of different thread blends and similar colours that I struggle to work with it. It is also quite a large design, the largest I have attempted. This is what the finished design will look like . . .

I am planning to stitch on this at the weekends when I have more time to settle down to it, but really need the encouragement to get me to pull it out in the first place! I hope to post some progress every fortnight or so, but there's no real deadline for the piece. I just want to get it finished!
Happy stitching to everyone,
