This is how it looked when I shared it last month. I only added 5 days of stitching to it in February. I'm afraid I have not worked on it since February 21st.
I was happily surprised to look at my spreadsheet and see that I added 1,447 stitches in those 5 days! If you look closely, you will see 3 tips of the dragon's wing.

I am linking up with Monday Stitchery Link Party #49 at Super Mom - No Cape! this week. It is a great place to visit for a free embroidery pattern (it is a cute rabbit this week) and to find links to more eye candy. If you do any hand stitching and have a blog, I encourage you to join the fun!
Yesterday, I meant to share photos of the wonderful treasures I received from Kim at Wisdom with Needle and Thread last week. Kim held giveaways every week in February to celebrate her 3rd year blogging and I won Week 4. Those of you that know me and my love of snowmen and Santa may be able to guess my absolute delight!
Along with my goodies, Kim sent this wonderful Christmas tote.
All of the sweet treats she sent me fit perfectly!
This Mary Hickmott's New Stitches No. 32 cross stitch magazine is filled with Christmas patterns.
This darling little Stitch & Zip Santa and Toys Mini Stocking Needlepoint Kit from Alice Peterson Company has the design printed directly onto the mesh cotton canvas. I'm not sure I have stitched anything without a chart, so this will be something fun and new!
I do so love snowmen! "Frosty Friends" by Bonnie Sullivan of All Through the Night Folk Art designs with a bit of Whimsy is just too cute!
This Bird Brain Designs Yard of Snowmen Table Runner is just screaming for me to start it.
Here is a close up. This is going to be SO cute!
The fabrics and pearl cotton are wonderful! I'm already working toward a few finishes so I can justify a new start...
In addition to the giveaway items my friend, Kim,
surprised me with two cuff kits.
The Flower Cuff by Orna Willis
And the Tree Cuff by Orna Willis.
These two kits include needles, threads, beads, canvas, wires, and instruction booklets. I do foresee myself learning some new stitching and sewing techniques!
Kim, you are just so generous. Thank you so much for all of these treasures!
After a month of giveaways, Kim is now celebrating her birthday by sending out RAKs (random acts of kindness.) I do hope you will stop by her blog to see her lovely work and to check out her birthday party. Here are the details.
Thank you so much for stopping by!
