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.


  1. He looks great! It's amazing how much he looked like a sketch until his finish where he looks like a picture. Very cool!

  2. This one is adorable too! Congratulations on having the patience to frog and restitch. It really was worth the effort. Are we going to see him framed? :)

    1. I just ordered the frame yesterday. So it should be ready in 2 weeks. Speaking of framed... I have a few more posts to make with some older finished framed. I've been slacking!
