Mystery Project Completed

IT'S DONE!!!

It is stitched on white 14 count Aida using DMC floss.

Size wise -- unknown because I cant find my tape measure.
It measures in stitches-- 150 W x 187 H. It took just over 3 months to complete.

The dragon is based on this dragon sketch. [link]
She gave me permission to use it!! Thanks!!





I don't think I will start another huge project just yet. It will be busy around here next month and at the end of June when my son offically graduates-- but he is going back next year for one more year to fix a mark he was totally disappointed in.

    1. I'm taking a small break for now. Doing 2 big stitches back to back has tired me out a bit!!

  6. Wow, that looks really beautiful, and the details came out remarkably, too! It's so cool to see a stitched piece where the original art's medium is so evident! Congratulations on your finish! ^^

    1. Thanks!! It does look like a sketch-- I had a few comments on DA saying it was cool seeing the cross stitch kept the detail of cracks on his nose and scale things.

  9. Yay, congrats on the finish! I have to admit, I wasn't expecting a dragon when you posted up that curious page (10, I think it was). Totally convinced you were doing a nakey lady with some evil horns, LOL.
