I started working on the second ornament for my sister's Christmas present. I actually did all of the cross stitches on July 3rd. However I got derailed shortly after.
I started with the stocking and eggshells:
Followed by all the greens not in the baby dragon:
And this shot is practically the same as the other one, all the cross stitches are done, all that's left is backstitching.
I worked on the backstitching yesterday after I finished Logan's name and finished it up this morning.
I am so glad I'm done with this. I still really didn't like working on this fabric. I really like Picture this Plus' fabric, but this weave was just too tight, it was difficult for me to stitch on it, but it looks good.
Pattern: You Are My Gift, Ornament #2
Pattern by: Dragon Dreams
Started Stitching: July 3, 2013
Finished Stitching: November 4, 2013
Fabric: 40ct. Legacy Newcastle Linen
Floss: DMC 2 over 2; Kreinik 1 over 2; Fuzzy Stuff 1 strand

Stitches: 740 out of 740 complete
As I mentioned before these are going to be ornaments, hopefully ball ornaments, I've seen some really nice ones online, hopefully I can do as good a job as some I've seen. So, one side will be the cross stitched dragon and dragonlet, on the other side will be my nephews' names and birth dates.
I did the first one on July 1st, it only took an hour or so:
Now I just need my second nephew to be born, yes he's still being stubborn, and I can finish the second one. Oh and I guess I should assemble them, I think it'll be easier to assemble both of them at the same time.
