Celestial Dragon by KezzaLN Celestial Dragon by KezzaLN
My biggest pride and joy within cross stitch to date (possibly ever)

11"x16" on navy 28ct evenweave. It is a kit by Design Works (designer Joan Elliot) and comes with 14ct aida.
I switched to the navy evenweave because I thought it would stand out more than standard white*

As my biggest and best project I wanted to document it accordingly :P
This took me 61 days in total between 12/07/2012 - 16/11/2013

It has:
121 pearl beads.
111 green beads.
82 purple beads.

131hrs 40 on all main stitching.
21hrs 43mins total on backstitch.
2hrs 17mins on beading.

157hrs 10mins in total.

It's FINISHED!




*The fabric that came with it I used for my cookie monster stitch :P

Holy Chaos! This work is just amazing! I could never stitch something even a quarter as good as that.

Thank you :) my biggest completed so far. Am working on a 16"x11" (solid stitching) of a leopard at the moment, on and off, and is enjoyable but nowhere near as fun as this dragon was :P

Oh I love Joan Elliot's stuff! At the moment I'm working on the phoenix from her Bewitching Cross Stitch book. I want to do this design next. :)

It is an enjoyable design to do, I loved every minute. (Although the moon got a little tedious at times - lol)

Would love to see the phoenix when done :)

It's available as a Design Works kit (14ct white aida) or the chart is in 'Bewitching Cross Stitch' book by Joan Elliott :)
