Dragon Dreams Finish

I finally got this finished on Wednesday, Feb 5th. So now I have moved on to finishing the Castle and Roses piece that I am going to turn into our wedding sampler. Maybe I'll be able to get it finished before the 10th - mostly backstitching and little fill in pieces. It's a Stoney Creek design so lots of detail and color changes.

I also received my Monopoly pattern in the mail today - so exciting! I have had the fabric all ready and I started stitching this today, starting with the "Go" square. The pattern calls for blue DMC 799 for the border around the board, but since this is going to be a family item (we're going to mount this piece in a coffee table), Scott and I decided on the royal blue DMC 3842 instead for the border. So far, I've gotten Mediterrean completed, the GO square and most of the border for the Community Chest square done. I thought it was going to be boring doing all of the straight stitching but it is fun to see the Monopoly board develop! Pictures to come....
