I was busy yesterday evening because the Cross Stitch Forum is having Stashmas and our mail-out date is today. I'm waiting on one more thing before I mail out, but I got plan B ready just in case.
I managed a little bit of stitching on Princess and the Dragon:
There was more below, but then I made a counting error and had to pull out about 100 stitches, or all the work I did last night. Boo... but at least the fabric held up really well to pulling out 1 over 1 on 28 count, so good on Chromatic Alchemy Jazlyn!
I also have a small amount of progress on LK's HoHoHo. I keep this as my stitching-in-the-car project so it doesn't grow very quickly.
I'm very happy with how the photo turned out since the fabric does look black for once. I try and take a photo with some of the white chart in it, then crop it out and sometimes it turns out exactly how I want it to. Having something white in the photo helps the white balance be a little more accurate. DH, being a photographer, helped me with that tip. :)
And because I'm holding out on you with photos of Homeward Trail, how about a giveaway? If you can find an area of missing stitches, not beads, in Monday's large photo (below), then I'll send you the giveaway of your choice. I have fabric, kits, threads or charts up for grabs.
EDIT: There are beads missing in the bottom left corner, but no stitches.
If there are a lot of correct guessers I'll use a random number generator, if only one person guesses correctly, then they'll win. Let's leave this open until 3PM EST tomorrow, November 5th.
Good luck and happy stitching!
