Volcano? - Dragons Update

** May SFS2015-A Reporting Link is in post below**

The mad rush is on... to try and get Dragons completed, framed and into exhibition/competition for June 24... I won't lie; it's not looking all that good.
Yes Dragons is coming along, and I made some amazing headway on the past long weekend we had here in Canada but I feel it's still not going to be enough. But we will see and I haven't given up hope yet.

While working through Dragons this time around I've been trying to get the smaller sections of changing color stitching done first. So up through the tree and branches. It's resulted in a really interesting look that to me is like a volcano.
So here's a quick snippet of last page of Dragons at almost half the page stitched. So close!
Can you see the volcano?

 

Every time I've picked up Dragons (almost every day this last 10 days in a row) I've gotten "The Final Countdown" song in my head. It truly is the home stretch here. So funny that 7.5 years of work comes down to a couple weeks to meet competition deadline. (PS: If I don't make this years deadline I can enter next year, but I'd really like to enter this year).

Thanks for stopping by and reading! Happy Stitching.

It does look like a volcano and good luck finishing before the competition! I've done that before and stayed up until really late to finish the night before. I hope that doesn't happen to you!

I definitely see a volcano and now I am going to be thinking about it all day trying to remember what volcano it looks like, hah. Disney keeps popping up so maybe the Firebird Suite volcano, filling with greenery. :D G'luck on finishing on time, go go goooo!

It looks fabulous - I'm rooting for you to finish it in time!

How funny that it's taken all that time and you are still down to the wire!

I'm sure you can do it though, smokin' needles and all!
