Dragons Page Complete & Faerie Bride Update

I have an exciting update for everyone on Dragons.
But first a question to answer.

A few people asked me on my last post what the canvaswork will be. It will be a scissors holder. So it folds in half and then has a little flap. Thanks for all your encouraging and wonderful comments on it!

Up first today, Faerie Bride from HAED. She's moving really slowly. Seriously can't believe how much colour change there is in her. But here she is to date:

Alright, and onto the most exciting update for today. I finished another page of Dragons on the weekend. This is the first page finish for the year. And it's almost a whole month early! That hopefully means I am cruising along to make my goal of at least four pages complete by year end. Maybe I'll get lucky and get more done. A girl can hope.
Here is the page I finished:


And here is the piece to date:


I recently took dragons into my LNS for a stitching night and the ladies were all so complimentary. It really made me feel awesome. So a big thanks to them and to all of you who continue to make me feel like my stitching doesn't suck as much as I sometimes think it does.
Really appreciate it!!

Oh, yes and a giveaway. I know I suck. I'm working on it. Really I am.
Coming up soon, maybe before the end of the week if I get things together. Not been feeling 100% lately so a few things have fallen to the wayside. The giveaway was one of those. I promise to get on it.
There will be two packages to win as always.

Thanks for all your comments!

PS.... I'm working on something special and different that I will be sharing soon (who doesn't love a little teaser/intrigue). it will be to commemorate our dearly passed friend Rene...

Mel,

I can't believe how fast (at least to me) Dragons is coming along! Nice progress on your Faerie Bride.

What do you stitch your HAED's on? I have one of the bookmark ones I want to do for my Mom for Christmas.

Oh wow! These dragons already look awesome! They are going to be stunning when finished.
Good progress on your faerie Bride. These color changes always slow you down, but they make it so pretty to look at.
