Twilight Duel Update #19 - June 2017

It has been a while since I shared an update on Twilight Duel.

The chart is from Heaven and Earth Designs and it is based on artwork by Ruth Thompson

I follow Ruth Thompson on Facebook and was thrilled when she announced that Evolve Watches was carrying her work. I am not affiliated with any of these shops or products. I do, however, have a son that loves Ruth Thompson's dragons and loves watches. There is also a set of magnets through Fairy Glen that includes the black dragon from Twilight Duel. So, I definitely have some gift ideas for his birthday and Christmas this year! ( I don't think he reads my blog...)

I did not complete the 4th HAED Challenge last spring, so I have not made any further progress on page 13. 

However, in the past 4 days, I have made some decent progress filling in page 7. 1,109 stitches have been added and it passed the 25% complete milestone! Whoo Hoo!

The top photo shows my progress through February 28th. This photo shows how the piece looks now. There is a photo of the complete piece of art on the sidebar to the right. 

I hope to finish page 7 by the beginning of August. On Instagram, I am participating in The Stitching Hour 2017 - a personal challenge hosted by AmbitiousStitches to stitch one hour a day from June 1st - August 1st. That should help me with this goal. You may follow my daily updates on my Instagram account here.

I have never looked closely enough to your project to see what it will be. This post caught my attention and now I know. WOW!!! You are brave to stitch such a complicated dragon scene. I LOVE the Twilight colorings. Stunning Dear...<3

The shading is very delicate and you must not strain your eyes too much. Take your time to work these dragons.

Brigitte said...

Wow, more than 1000 stitches added - that's progress.

Catherine said...

This is coming along so well! You're definitely making progress. And it sounds like you have more projects to follow it up!

I love seeing progress shots of these dragons. And I can definitely see progress.

Thanks so much for linking up to last week's Stitchery Link Party and for the link back. Aloha hugs!

I imagine your son must be hanging over your shoulder willing you to hurry up and finish this one. Hmmm.....can't say as I'd blame him either, because I'm looking forward to it too!

That looks fantastic Renee. What a lot of progress you've made! Good luck with your hour a day challenge, it sounds a good way to make more progress on this gorgeous design.

Thank you, Catherine! I hope to see more progress soon.
