It’s nice when this one comes up in the rotation even if I’m working a lot on the background at the moment. I did have some of the dragon to finish off on page 8 and it didn’t take me long to get that page finished. Afterwards I scooted down to start page 13 which is the next page diagonally.
So I’m still working a lot on the blanket that the dragon has overhead but this page I get to stitch more of the mobile phone that is being used as a light. Which also means I’ve reached the big block of white – that is a phrase that is calling out to be written in capitals. This block spreads over the page break so I’m working a lot into page 14 as well. White is one of the least forgiving colours for having a straight edge because you can see the line of thread on the back where you change direction at the end of the row. It probably isn’t so noticeable once the piece is framed and the backing board means that light isn’t coming through the back but it sticks out while I’m stitching. Of course when I can concentrate on a block of colour (as in not get distracted by anything) it stitches up a lot quicker.
I won’t be working on this project now until January, I would like to work on it a little more frequently so there is still a lot of work to be done getting pieces finished and avoiding starting anything new as I still have a couple of projects that are waiting for a space on the rotation. There will be a change to a rotation next month, Unicorn is being put back into hibernation because I want to bring in a full coverage piece that I’ll be able to use for the challenges in Full Coverage Fanatics next year. They also have a challenge for November that I’ll be able to use the project with.
For now here is where I finished up on A Little Light Reading
