Twilight Duel Update #5 January 2016

It is already the 2nd Monday of 2016. How time does fly! 

It is already time for my monthly update on the HAED Twilight Duel chart I am working on for my 16-year-old son.  
This photo shows progress from August 30 - December 13, 2015. The chart is based on original artwork bRuth Thompson

On December 26th, I finished page 1! Only 23 to go...

The photo to the left shows my progress from August 30th - December 30th of 2015.

A cross-stitch group I joined last year on Facebook - Cross Stitch and Discuss - began a Heaven and Earth Designs stitch-a-long (SAL) yesterday. It is a year long SAL. The photo to the left shows my starting point for the CSAD HAED SAL. (As you can see, I have a ways to go.)

I look forward to comparing this picture to the project at the end of this year.

This is how it looked after adding a couple hundred stitches yesterday. The second row of page 2 is almost complete. If you look carefully, you can even see the tip of one of the white dragon's wings! (Just in the nick of time to break up some of the blue...)

Total stitches completed: 9,885. (Added 1,983 stitches.)
Page 2 is 24.38% complete.
Chart is 6.70% complete. 

I will share my progress again on February 8, 2016 (the 2nd Monday of the month.) 

I am linking up with the Monday Stitchery Link Party at Super Mom - No Cape! again this week. It is a great place to visit for a free embroidery pattern and to find links to more eye candy. This week's embroidery pattern is fantastic (in my opinion) and I hope to make time to stitch it some day. If you do any hand stitching and have a blog, I encourage you to join the fun!

Thank you for stopping by!

Considering how large this project is, you are moving quickly. =) Over 10,000 stitches now! And other things moving along, too. Wow.

You have taken on a mammoth project with the dragons. You'll be very popular with your son.

You are moving along so quickly. You must have excellent eyesight to manage seeing the blues.

Yes, I can see the tip of the white dragon's wing. You are getting there!

Wow - I continue to be amazed at the detailed, complex patterns you stitch. Marvelous!
