SK Effects of Caffeine - SAL Update 10

I must admit, I am SO excited to be done with most of the spine of this book. It is finally time to start creating the sleepy dragon and his cup of coffee (or tea)! I just love Randal Spangler's artwork and am so happy Heaven and Earth Designs created this cross-stitch chart.

This is how it looked in the last update. 1,030 stitches have been added since then.

The project is now 48.06% complete.

Page 2 is 80.99% finished.

The spine of the book reads:

Joining the Stitch Along (SAL) hosted by Avis at Sewing Beside the Sea has motivated me to make so much progress on this piece.

For this SAL, each participant selects one project to work on. We all share our progress every 3 weeks.  I do hope you will hop over to see what everyone else is working on. We are in different time zones, so if a post is not up yet, please check back later. If you are interested in joining the SAL, check out the details Avis has shared on her blog.


I hope you all have an amazing week!

Thank you, Megan! I am a bit of a nerd. I track my progress on a spreadsheet that I update after I stitch each day.
