The photo above shows how it looked last month.
Here is a photo showing 7 months of progress - from August 30, 2015 - March 30, 2016.
There is a challenge on the New Official Heaven and Earth Designs Facebook Group to complete a full page using only one color at a time. Page 8 (beneath page 2 - with the wing tips in the photo to the left) would have been the easiest to get to, but my son wanted to see the black dragon emerge. So, I made my way to page 4 (as some of page 3 had been stitched.) Page 4 should be complete by June 15th.
This is how it looks now. I added 1,933 stitches this past month.
Page 2: 58.15%
Page 3: 4.85%
Page 4: 17.07%
Page 5: 0% (10 stitches)
Page 7: 2.7%
Page 10: 0.14%
I also took a picture of it while I had it out of the Q-snap frame, just in case you wondered how big it will be.
I try not to think of it this way and just take it one stitch at a time!
For the challenge, I finished all of the black on page 4 and am now working on completing a 2nd color.
I am linking up with Stitchery Link Party #53 at Super Mom - No Cape! I encourage you to visit to see the free vintage embroidery pattern and to see what other bloggers have been working on this week. If you do any hand embroidery and have a blog, I encourage you to link up and join the fun!
Thank you for stopping by!
