IHSW was a Success

Here is my update for the IHSW. I got a whole lot of time Friday and Sunday with 600 stitches each day. Saturday I only got 200 in. So I got a total of 1,400 in. Look at all those beautiful color changes in the dragon.

The details just in case anyone would like to know. Stitching this design on 28 count Beige evenweave. Using 1 thread over 1 thread. I do 2 columns at a time and blocks of hundred for parking. I don't leave my needle on the parked threads.

It's a new week. We did school already this morning and 2 loads of laundry. I'm looking forward to this weekend cause Hubby and I are going up north to hang out with friends for the night Saturday. We always have way too much fun so we are both looking forward to it. Hope everyone has a great week ahead!
