Almost Done with Green Dragon Bookmark

I really thought I’d get him finished this weekend, but the universe had other plans. I did however come very close to finishing him.

Cross Stitch WIP Green Dragon Bookmark

This is Green Dragon Bookmark by Dracolair and I’m stitching him on 32 count Belfast Linen Silkweaver Solo Mini with the DMC threads as charted. I do really wish I had stuck to the 28 count fabric instead of opting for 32, it’s been a tight squeeze with all the fractional stitching, but I wasn’t thinking of that when I chose my fabric.

All the cross stitching is done on the dragon and about half the border is stitched. Once I finish the border stitching I’ll go back and do all the backstitching and outlining, then figure out how I want to finish the edges and insert him into the next book I pick up.

Then comes the really tough decision of what to stitch next…

Thanks for checking out my stitching. What are you stitching this week? Join us over in the Facebook Community to share progress pictures and talk about your current stitching!

About Loretta

I’ve been a cross stitcher since I was 8 years old. It was something I learned as a Girl Scout when we did a project for a badge related to crafts and the group choose to cross stitch a holiday design on a red sweatshirt using waste canvas. (Talk about hard first project, that was such a pain!) I was one of the first ones finished and I’ve had a needle in my hand almost every day since then.

    thats looking really nice now :)))

  2. I actually got some of the backstitch in since I took the picture, it’s hard to concentrate on other things when you’re so close to a finish!

    Looking good Loretta!

  4. First rule of Stitching: IF I plan to finish something at X time. Y will happen and X will not occur until much later. At least I finished the stupid pig on the County Fair Chart from Silver Needles. Which ain’t bad consider “I’ll finish the Pig tonight” became 4 days for one 23 line minus tail pig. And it was all one color… groan.
