Red Dragon

So I eventually solved my mini slump with most of the suggestions offered. I took a short break. I bought some stash. I started two smalls.

I just finished off Dragon Dreams' newest freebie Compassion. I think I'll also stitch up Hope and hang them together.

As always, before backstitching:

And after:

Your before and after photo's just proves how good back stitch is, even if most of us hate doing it.

I think I am the only cross stitcher who doesn't mind BS (isn't that interesting that back stitching is just BS? LOLOL)

I always feel like I am in a mindless state when I do it . . . so, strange . . love your pre and post pix.

Compassion is lovely, well done. I just love dragons so I think this one will be added to my forever growing "to-do" pile.

Wonderful finish! I love the before and after photos :) I was so happy to see that DD's had released a new design, and even happier to learn that it is for such a worthy cause.
