Nocturne: Fifth Post - Complete

I, once again, had the desire to clean up my WIP page.  This time I had some success!  I pulled Nocturne out from it's drawer and within two nights I completed it, makes me wonder why I took so long to finally finish it.

It's always interesting going from 28 ct stitching to 14 ct.  I always feel like the stitches are way too big, especially when I'm doing 14 ct on 28 ct.  I start thinking, maybe I went over three instead of two.  And toward the end I actually did on two stitches, but I caught that before I even crossed them.

And as I've been doing with this piece I've taken a picture one dragon at a time.  First dragon:

Second dragon:

Third dragon (and complete):

So, one off of my to finish list, and one added to my to frame list.

  1. Well done on your finish, must feel good to strike another off the WIP list!

  2. Congrats on a fantastic finish! It's beautiful!

  3. Congrats! It's such a cool finish!

  4. I love Firewing Designs so much! This one looks lovely on that fabric. I prefer 32count myself and find 28 does seem large in comparision.
    I also get very close to completion then put a design down for no good reason, only to find I could have finished it in a few days.

    1. I also prefer the 32 count, but I did the first one of these signets back before I knew anything about linen fabric or counts or 2 over 1 versus 1 over 1. Now, I'm kinda stuck keeping them all at 28 count since it would drive me nuts if one was a different count than the others.
