I'm In Love With Celestial Dragon!

Lately all I want to do is stitch, stitch, stitch!  Especially on Celestial Dragon, I am just so in love with this design!  The colours are fantastic and the pictures just don't show how shimmery this dragon is!

Also on Saturday Art Deco Spirits got some needle time.  While I was waiting for my Mum at the hairdressers I brought ADS with me and got quite a bit of it done.

Today was my weigh in day, and my hard work from last week has really paid off!  I'm down two pounds!  Yay!  Now to keep this same focus this week and hopefully I'll knock off those last 4 pounds in short order.

Well, you know the colours are probably what attracts many to the TWD's Each and every one is spectacular. I love the CD and it is stitching up very quickly. That's the thing with all of them, once you get started it is hard to put it down...lol I say that very loosely.

congrats on that 2 pounds. I have every faith you will accomplish your goal.

I love ADS! I think it may have something to do with all of the BLUE! Yum!! lol

Little Cat said...

I'm in love with your Celestial Dragon too! It's gorgeous!

Just out of interest because I'm never managed a project that big, but would this piece work on aida or would it have to be an evenweave?

Carolyn NC said...

Great stitching!

Raven/Missy said...

The CD looks fabulous! I have this chart in my stash and hope to stitch is someday. Yours is looking fabulous!

Hi Dani,

You make stitching Teresa
Wentzler's designs look so
easy. Celestial Dragon is
looking fabulous and you
are so right about the
colors used to bring this
dragon to life. They are
gorgeous!!

You've been speeding along
on Art Deco Spirits too and
it's looking great as well.
Love the color palate of this
one as well.

Congrats on the weight loss!!
You've been working so hard
at it, it's great that your
efforts are finally being
rewarded.

The stitching retreat that you
hosted looks like it was lots
of fun, with a great group of
ladies gathered for the
occasion. I assume you got
the tea stain out of Celestial
Dragon alright. Eeek!!!

Cheers!
