Dragons Update

I finally have a dragons update for everyone. While I haven't gotten much stitching in the past few weeks (working late and all) I have gotten enough that makes it worth showing you dragons.
There is the page I am working on:

I have a goal to finish this page by the end of June. I need to get stitching! I mark off my charts in coloured pencil crayons, different colour for different days.
Here is what my page colouring looks like so far:

And here is the piece so far to date:

I am working again this weekend and will be working late until next Friday. When hopefully our massive magazine goes out the door and is done!
Then I can get back into more stitching. (and picking up my stash that my LNS has on hold for me).

On the heath front for those wondering... I am managing and have a specialist appt. on Tuesday morning. I will update you all on what they say.


Thanks for visiting and your comments! I really appreciate your understanding while I get through this crazy patch of work and health issues.

Beautiful picture! I really like the way you use a different color each day to mark your place. I think I might start doing that myself.

Looks good, Mel. I do highlighting like you, only I use highlighter markers. :)

You are making much progress, you can get this page done by June I am sure. Lighter colors will help too.
