Since I am wrapping things up at work before summer break, I ended up working through my lunch hour and may end up doing so again today. That means a little less stitching time. So I don't have much progress to show.
The only piece I actually did get time to work on yesterday was The Dragon of the Winter Moon. I did finish up the blade at the end of the tail and filled in a bit more of the icy mountain range below the dragon. I know it is hard to see but there has been progress. That's one of the reasons I backstitch as I go along. It helps me to "find my place" as we used to say in grade school. I've decided this dragon's name is Luna. I had first thought it might be Selena but I realized soon enough that Selena wasn't a strong enough name for this matriarch who curls so protectively and alertly in her mountain stronghold.
We are expecting some rain later in the day. I am hoping it holds off till evening since I'd like to finish the first motif on The English Band Sampler after work. The soft light of 5:30 to 7:00 pm is perfect for stitching on the patio.
But if that doesn't work out, there is always The Silversmith's Shop or some sewing and assembly projects to work on indoors.
