Dragons update - officially halfway

As promised last week I have an update on my dragons piece. Following with my schedule for the year (I'm a few weeks behind but not too bad) I got another page finish in the last 3 months. This officially brings me up to the halfway point!!
Though I must admit that I was sick of it for a bit. But with Lizzie Kates "Halloween Rules" as an easy stitch break it's been better. So here is the page finish:



And the whole piece to date:



I just adore how this looks from far away and am so pleased as it progresses.

coming soon: the pattern that is going to be available for free in memory of Rene. I cannot wait to share it with you all. But I have to finish the title page first. :)

Wow. it's ages since I last saw this updated, it looks gorgeous!
I have trouble with getting bored if I work on only one project, so I now have a rotation to solve that. Albeit my rotation is a bit hit and miss!
