is after three days of working on The Guardian, starting with the Monday SAL. This is the first TW I have worked on in a while. With all that border, I am backstitching as I go. I couldn't face weeks and weeks of backstitching just border at the end.
is my Guardian after the SAL yesterday. 5 days of work so far.
is my draggie after yesterday's SAL. This is after 13 days of work. DH has decided that his name is Draco Oro Magnus. Yes, very imaginative, he named him big gold dragon.
is after 16 days of working on my draggie. You can easily tell where his home is in the picture.
is after 19 days. I continued on yesterday after the Monday SAL since all I had left in that section was a bit of backstitching. I am going to be moving on to the lower right hand corner next week.
This is after 24 days.
This is after 27 days.
Day 37 update
Day 40 update After being put aside for quite a while so that I could get something else done, he finally got a couple of days of work this week. Now all of the background is done, and next week I can start on the dragon itself.
(edited to fix pic links)
I am going to try to see if I can't finish this by the end of the year. I don't know if I am going to make it, but I am going to give it a good try.
I think I am going to be able to get the stitching done by the end of the day today, but there is no way I will finish the backstitching. About a third of the dragon is backstitched, but the rest of it needs to be done. I will definitely be finished with my draggie before the end of the week, but rather than my last finish for 2008, he will be the first of 2009.
