Cheryls Bouquet & Row on Dragons FINISHED!!

I'm very pleased to announce two finishes. (okay one finish, one row complete)
Let's start with the official finish. Cheryl's Bouquet. This is a free pattern by Needlemania. I used Rainforest thread from Wildflowers as the variegated colour. I chose not to do the square border that is in the pattern and will instead frame it as a square. I'm quite pleased with the colours and how it turned out. Here she is:

The second 'finish' is not really a finish but it's a huge milestone for me. I have completed a row on Dragons!! This was my goal for the years, to complete one row,which is four pages, and I have done it! It was very exciting to put in the last stitches of this row last night. Only three more rows to go.  This piece is about 1/3 of the way done now. Here it is to date:


If you haven't already, check out my previous post and enter my giveaway. You still have time drawing is not until Yule (Dec 21).

I have confirmed that I am not working at all next week, or the week after! I am sooo excited. I see some stitching time in there for me. And of course hanging with some friends and family and such. We are celebrating Christmas #1 with B/F's family on Saturday. Should be fun as my nieces and nephews love presents (they are kids of course they do, lol).

Hope everyone is staying safe and warm. it's snowy and cold here. But I know other places have been getting way worse snowstorms than us!

Congrats on Bouquet for Cheryl. I know you have been wanting to get that done for awhile now. And getting a full row on your HAED, that is an accomplishment. Enjoy your 2 weeks off and hope you get lots of stitching done. Maybe another completed page?? Ducking from you throwing something at me......

Congratulations on your happy dances. I think when you are stitching on a HAED piece, several happy dances are OK. One would be not enough for such a BAP, lol
