DUCJC 2015 - Day 17

Hello All!

I woke up this morning to the harshest frost of the winter and a tiny flurry of snow. Pity anybody who's out in this weather camping - like my daughter! Well, her camp is called "Frost Camp" so if it was warm it would kind of defeat the object!!

These dragon charts are really addictive and my plan of sending the boys out for the day sort of worked in that they stayed indoors but left me alone to stitch for quite a long time. I made a lot of progress and for once thought I would not leave all the backstitching until last!

Dragon of Fire
Free chart from Dragon Dreams Inc.
Stitched on 16ct Nebula hand-dyed Aida by The Crafty Kitten 2 over 1

Love and hugs

Beautiful fabric and a fantastic dragon. I like doing the back stitching as I go. Looks fantastic.

Justine said...

Oh wow that's stunning! The fabric is gorgeous. Great idea to backstitch as you go, it will make it less painful at the end.

Linda said...
