We had Internet issues for a couple of days, so yesterday I was unable to share this update on the Heaven and Earth Designs Twilight Duel cross-stitch I am working on for my youngest son. He fell in love with Ruth Thompson's dragons when he saw this chart. At my current rate of progress, it should be finished by March of 2020. (I did warn him it would be about a 5-year project!)
As mentioned last month, I am working on page 13 for a challenge with the New Official Heaven and Earth Designs Group on Facebook. I took the piece off of the frame for a photo at the end of February and have not worked on it since.
To complete the challenge, I need to add about 190 stitches a day. There is a lot going on this month, so that may not happen.
I did decide to reward myself though. Every time I finish a 10x10 grid on the chart of page 13, I add a thread to fill in a bit of page 7 (to the blank area left of page 13.)
Can you see the beginnings of the talon that appeared last month?! I was thrilled to see it emerge. And this piece is SO close to being 25% complete!

I am linking with the Monday Stitchery Link Party #101 at Super Mom - No Cape! I do hope you will visit to see the beautiful free vintage rose embroidery pattern and to see what others have been working on. There is a giveaway celebrating last week's 100th Stitchery Link Party and celebrating the blog's 9th year, I do hope you will check it out.
