Teresa Wentzler's Celestial Dragon is what's known as a BAP (big ass project) and there have been many evenings when I stare at all the little x's and wonder at my foolishness. But any progress is movement forwards and closer to completion. Sometimes, all I have are small victories, so I mark them.
Remember, here's the finished project:
This is the lower right corner.
Finished this section. BTW, that design in the middle is stitched one over one. Not to be attempted in anything but natural light.
Back to the dragon body and the world of confetti.
So my focus presently is finishing this section of trunk and leg and then I'll move to the upper right corner, which is the last one. But, wait! There's more! The beading and backstitching will probably take another six weeks after that. But I can see the end from here and it feels good.
