Dragon Boo: Second Post - Complete

In keeping with the theme of yesterday's post.  Here's another random finish on something I haven't posted on in a while.  October 30th of last year to be exact.  Not as long ago as Dragon Game, but close enough.

I never added this to the WIP page because all I had left was back stitching and I figured I'd get that done quickly.  However, I had a large aversion to back stitching, I guess, and just never finished it up.  At least until today, or last night, depending on how you look at things.

I had the first dragon done shortly after my last post.  Today (Yesterday) I did the other three.

And finally a very small project that should have taken less than a week is done in a little over a year.

And now it's time for bed.  Good Night!

Dragon Game: Second Post - Complete

The last time I blogged about this was over two years ago.  Wow, time flies.

It was stitching along quickly and then I started working on a dark brown color.  It wasn't until after I'd finished the color that I realized I used 3371 instead of 3031.  I thought I'd be able to just leave it and go on my way.  However the color was way too different.  So I had to frog all the stitches, 328 stitches.  Now the problem was I had also stitched the black, and it was very difficult to tell the difference between 310 and 3371.  I picked it back up about 10 days ago determined to get it back on track.

After I finished frogging and restitching I was happy that I had decided to redo it.

And since it was small, I kept going...

And going...

Until it was done.

The next long abandoned project is SK Magical Arrival.  I lost my progress on my chart back when my hard drive crashed.  I have no idea which colors I've stitched and which I have not.  I need to work it through and figure it out so I can finish him up.  According to my last post he's over 78% complete and I'd stitched a bit more after that post.
