Stash for sale & IHSW update.

Hi everyone! I hope everyone had a great IHSW this past weekend! I can't wait to blog-stalk to see everyone's progress!  I actually got tons done on my focus piece but I'll get to that in a minute.

More importantly is that my friend Brenda is selling a TON of stash, lots of HAED charts, an assortment of other charts including some Mira's Passione Ricamo & many others and a bunch of hand dyed fabrics. Here's a link to her album: Brenda's Stash For Sale She's selling everything at really marked down prices so please head over there to check it out. I thank you for that!! If you want anything, you can email her directly at b.delgrosso@comcast.net and if you could put something identifying in the subject line like "stash for sale" or "sale items" that would be great too just so she knows & doesn't "spam" you LOL   THANK YOU!!!

Now here are my Crescent Moon Dragon, aka Man Dragon, updates. You might recall that Brenda & I dubbed this Man Dragon as we are both stitching it for our boys & we modified it by making some minor changes in beads & in leaving of the border....which I love but my son said it looks too "girly" with the border & some other things on the chart. This weekend I got a shit-ton of backstitching done, got some beading done, got the tail completely finished with stitching & beading & a small portion of the moon stitched as well. Man that moon is a pain in the ass, but well worth it! LOL I think my favorite part of the piece so far is the finished tail at the very bottom. I love the colors together. Though I LOVE the colors of the whole thing, the tail just strikes me.  Thank you for looking!
