Dragons Update - Almost a Page

As promised here is an update on dragons. I'm very close to finish this page. Hopefully within a week or two. So that is good. I want to make some serious progress on this piece this year as it's for my Uncle and I feel bad that he's waiting.

Here is the page I am working on (look you can see tips of wings and the orange/green in the scales!)
 

And here is the full piece to date. This pic doesn't have the greatest colour, but you get the idea: 

 

In other news... I may have an ulcer. Going to get some tests after seeing the doctor this morning in a few hours. And then start some meds. I have been having trouble taking in deep breaths for the past few weeks and stuff. So got it checked out. *sigh* 
It's crazy I don't get colds or flus (knock on wood) just other crazy weird things going on. 
I'm definitely ready to be not "sick" in anyway. My vertigo is annoying enough. But alas, that is not the way it is meant to be. 

This weekend... Go Saints! :)  (though I am sad that Super Bowl means football season is over, but Daytona in a few weeks so that is alright, and Olympics and NHL is starting to get fired up for playoffs).

Looks great Mel! I hope you get your health issues sorted out soon.

Dragons look beautiful, I think I can see some wings... Ulcer isn't beautiful at all, take care and listen to doctors.

Meari said...

Dragons looks really good, Mel. Sorry to hear that you might have an ulcer. That's no fun!

Carissa said...

Mel,

Dragons look great! Hope you're able to find out quickly what's going on with your body and that you feel better soon.

I have no comment on the SuperBowl....I'm simply not a fan of football!

Next time you take pictures, I'll watch and we'll see what we can do about getting better lighting and colour in your shots.

Hi Mel,

You are making great progress on dragons and I can definitely see the tips of the wings.

Thanks for your well wishes on our huge snow storm! We know we had over 24 inches of snow. We are just waiting to hear the final count.

Take good care of yourself.

Nice progress, they take some dedication to complete! Not sure who I'm rooting for in the game today.

I'm sorry about the ulcer (if that's what it is). The stitching is coming along beautifully.

One thing I *don't* miss about living in the States is the Super Bowl. I've never been interested in sports of any kind, and living in Wisconsin meant being surrounded by it.

Brigitte said...

Wow, what a progress on your HAED. The more colours you add the more interesting it looks.

Jen said...

It must be really nice to stitch with such a different colour. Hope they sort out the health problems for you.

Siobhan said...

Lovely progress. What an amazing piece that is! I hope you get the health stuff sorted out. Big hugs.

Carla said...

Dragons is coming along great!

Shelley said...

Dragons is looking great! It's so nice to see something besides the water, lol!

Maxine said...

Yaayyyy Dragon's progress pic is fantabulous Mel :) Hope you get sorted ok at the Doc's, I have a hiatus hernia which causes me a lot of stomach problems with acid etc and because I have been getting a bad pain (when is a pain good!!) in my chest I have to go tomorrow for an ECG just to be sure it's that and not my heart!!

Terri said...

As always Mel your stitching is beautiful :)
