AEDM 2010: Day 10 The dragon

One of my projects is to finish this dragon for Mati´s 15th birthday next February.
It seems very doable, taking into account the few white spots left.
Now add that I have been working on this since 1996 and you are allowed to doubt my goal. :D
Yes, you read right. I started the dragon for him when he was born.
It is quite a complex design, with many colours made out of two strands of two different colours, Each cross stitch thread has six strands. I must take one of those and mix it with another strand from another colour. The blending is cool.

Needlepoint and beadworking is bad enough. I would totally be blind after this. I tried cross stich once. Once. And it was on afghan stitch with yarn not itty bitty embroidery thread. You ROCK!

Wonderful dragon! It is very freeing when you finish projects that have been sitting around for a while.

Oh wow that DOES look like a complex piece but the final product is just stunning.

My granny used to cross-stitch and she has made most awesome ones. I have 3 of her works hanging in my house.

Unfortunately I lack the patience to cross-stitch myself, when I see lovely pieces like this one I sorta itch to do try it out (a simple small piece;)) myself again some time.
