Before we left on our trip I was sad because I didn't have a project to work on in the car and the I saw my Big Project on the planter in the dining room and Yay! I have been working on it. I have completed 2 more colors on this trip, when I could work on it in the car, which is to say when Neil Gaiman's sultry voice wasn't holding my rapt attention. We have another 8 hour trip tomorrow so maybe I can get a 3rd color done. I will post a pic when we get back. So excited to have made progress on it again, first time in like 6 months!

What Neil Gaiman are you listening to?  He's one of my favourite authors.

I need to buckle down, I still have a chance of completing mine for October.  I already have my next project picked out.  It's smaller so will be more portable than the one I have in the big floor stand.

Here's my progress for August! I don't usually work with dark colors first, but it's just such a clear outline, it was going to save a lot of time counting and re-counting. So, here's the top of his head!



Next month may be slim pickin's. I'm going to take some small projects (TBD) on vacation with me, and I have a lot of work left for my Halloween costume. So much crafting!

An outline like that will make the other stitching much easier, chrislizbert

Here is mine at the end of hte summer. Not too exciting, I worked more on the snow and filled in some of the areas where I was missing 4 stitches of one colour or something.  Trying to get the rest of the background done before I work on the wagon, as I want it to the the last thing I stitch before I backstitch.

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

Filling in all the little parts I missed is so boring  Tongue  7 stitches of colour 14073.  4 of a blend.  11 of colour 27979.  Oh, 4 more of 14703.  Another 8 stitches of a different blend.  snoooozzee.

I am traveling in a couple weeks and can't take this one with me, so I am taking my next pattern.  It only has 2(!) colours.  Normally I think that would be very boring but it will be a relief after this project and it's many, many, colour changes.

This is what I have so far on my dragon! Well, I am working on the antique very light blue now but I'm working by color.

Photo taken in the parking lot of a DQ on our road trip. So little time to stitch now that we're not road tripping!
