I have fished out my HAED (http://www.heavenandearthdesigns.com/) Pirate Dragon to take some progress pics. Unbelievable I started this about 3years ago, and Its only a quick stitch! I really want to get at least the page im working on finished this year but would really love to get another one done too!
I really love how its looking. The detail is amazing, really worth all of the effort I have put in over the years. I am working 2 threads over 1 on 25hpi Laguna linen. It took a while to get used to it but I think the coverage is great. I'm not sure I would have felt 100% happy with anything else. I mainly see these designs stitched in tent stitch which would make it a lot quicker but im not planning to do one bigger than this anyway so full cross stitch is perfect.
