Firstly, the shark cross stitch is complete, although the back stitch isn't quite done:
Durene Jones Under the Sea SAL
2 over 2 charted colours on 28 ct Eliat (Chromatic Alchemy)
This is a super secret Dimensions kit that I started in maybe 2008 or 2009. It will eventually be for DH and the pattern is 3 wolves howling at the moon. DH was away last Wednesday and I dug this out to work on. It looked like this last time it was out:and I got to here:
It's on 14 count aida from a kit, this is kind of before I realized there was better fabric out there, but I've done so much I won't be restarting. There are so many blends in this kit... But it's nice and I'd like to finish it some day, so I'll try and get it out when DH is away. :)
I dug out another WIP that hasn't been touched since last year, Tribal Dragon. It was here:
and one night got the green a little farther:
I was away at a conference all weekend and of course I went a little out of my way to the not-so-local-needlework-shop. I was telling myself I didn't need anything, which of course I don't, but hey, I can't not go! These were my goodies from Battenkill Stitchery.
I also brought The Princess and the Dragon to get some of the filling in done. I didn't get as much done as I would have liked since they had to turn the lights down sometimes and it was too dark to stitch. I worked on the dragon part the whole weekend, and it used to be here:
and I managed this much:
Also, I have some news! Heather of It's Geek to Me and I are thinking we can do a SAL for the Letters from Nora - H. We think we can start next Wednesday, so I'm looking forward to getting back into my Letters. They're fairly quick and fun to do.
Jo pointed out how many dragon WIPs I had and liked my idea of having a dragon month. We're leaning towards August since that would fit in the Theme-tas-stitch Animalia month. Join in if you'd like!
I'm really overdue in posting about this, but you should all check out Laura's fantastic journey through her WIPs and stash. She is also looking for someone to adopt this project, it's beautiful and about half-stitched. It's ideal if you have any weddings coming up.
I think that was all I meant to post about? I hope you're all doing well and Happy Stitching!
