New Start / First Tusal of 2013

I have had another new start for 2013.  I joined the Heaven and Earth Bulletin Board's 2013 Freebie SAL.  The design I chose was the QS Literate Dragon as being the mum of two boys I thought this would be suitable for either of them when I eventually finish it.  The first picture is what it should look like when it is finished.


This is my first week's progress.  Not a lot compared to some I have seen on Facebook but I am quite pleased with it.  It is stitched on 18ct magic guide 2 x 1.  As it is a five week month this month I have decided to carry on with him for another week before putting him away until it is his turn again in my rotation.


Finally for today is my first Tusal report for 2013.  I am quite concerned about the amount of orts in my jar because of the amount of confetti in my dragon I think I may have been a bit generous when throwing away my orts so I can see that I might have to get more threads for him if I keep going at this rate lol.  If you want to join the Tusal, you can find out more at Daffycat's blog


Until next time, happy stitching.

Love Lesleyanne

A great start on the sal. I am doing mystic garden and all the confetti is making it really slow going. I only have about 400 stitches in so far, a long way to go for me :)

Great start! I am so jealous - I am doing the same one and wish I picked 18 count ... 22 count is driving me crazy. And you definitely have more progress. Well done!
