Phoenix Finished!

Dracolair Designs
Unknown Zweigart hand dyed fabric

The @$^@$%$%@$%@^@#!$@ backstitching on this was a nightmare. The backstitch was charted on separate pages and was mostly done in long stitch, and didn't correspond well to grid intersections. It took forever and drove me batty while I was working on it. I should have finished it well before the end of 2006, but I didn't. I just couldn't force myself to work on it. But now it's done and it looks gorgeous. And I did discover how nice Kreinik's cord is to work with. Next up: finishing Frog Prince and bringing back out Fantasy Triptych. I'll have to find something simple to work on as well as both of those are very colour change intensive.

I'm not stalking you, honest! I was just going to add a comment to your (then) most recent blog asking Heather, Heather, where art thou?
Sorry to hear about the illnesses - it's going around big time. Thankfully, our house had it before the Christmas break.
So, your last post says 11:07p.m. but it's only now 10:11p.m. ...time difference of an hour? (DUH!)
Take care!

Wow, wow, wow! I know the backstitch was a royal PITA, but wow does the final look AWESOME.
