I’m still plugging along on this pattern. My fiance and I have been busy recently with some first-time-buying-a-house stuff, so I haven’t had as much time to sit and stitch, but I’ve made some progress.
It’s really fun stitching a huge block of one color and seeing the rest of the pattern appear out of the sea of gold. I can see the shields in the pile of treasure forming and I can see the dragon carefully guarding his treasure slowly coming to glare at me. I love it!
I finally finished all the gold. The hoard is almost complete! I’ll need to fill in the flickers of coins and some shields from over-confident, greedy warriors. I think there’s a sword in this pattern, too.
But first, I wanted to get to work on the main character of this story – the dragon.
This is the true test of my ability to count stitches… So far so good, though! I didn’t get too much farther than this for this post, but the dragon’s tail is coming along nicely.
And just look at this gorgeous back! I wanted to immortalize it before I added the rest of the colors and it gets messy. It looks like my fiance and I have done what we needed to do on our end and are now waiting for the other parties involved to get all their stuff done, so I should have more time to make some more progress on this wonderfully whimsical stitch. I’m very much looking forward to it!
