Dragons... 1 more down, 6 to go!!!

That's right... only 6 more pages to go on Dragons!!!
It's a far cry from the 24 that I started with 4 years ago (almost to the day in fact).
This piece has been both a joy and a bit of a PITA. But for the most part I still love it just as much as I did when I started it.
Here's the latest page completion in detail:
The row that the latest page is from:

And the Dragons to date as a whole:
For those not familiar this BAP of mine it is on ivory 25ct evenweave, 1 thread over 1 with DMC floss. The pattern is by Creature Creations (who no longer exist). 


I was very excited to get down to 6 pages. I dunno why, but only a row and a half seems like so little to go. Though it will likely take me until Christmas 2013 to get it all done (and I'm behind on my yearly goal for them) at the same time there are 3 pages in the remaining 6 that are very easy solid based areas. So I think being a bit behind won't hurt me too badly on this one.

In other news I got a package in the mail today from the lovely Helena from ILCS Yahoo Group that had 2 Mirabilias I got from her as well as some bonus Just Cross Stitch magazines, all ones I didn't have! :)
I was so excited I already went through and sticky'd my favourites. :)

Coming up soon: the new commission piece, already a 1/4 done! 
A giveaway... yep that's right a giveaway!! It will be a pattern PLUS the DMC thread to go with it, and some other goodies. Watch for it next week!
