Behold! I have finished the first line of pages.
It has only taken me 6 months to get this first line done. Mother of dragons, what the hell have I gotten myself in to? 6 pages .... of 42! I'm going to be working on this piece for years!
BUT, the next page the mermaid makes her entrance. I'm excited to begin stitching that.
I still have my owl kitted up and ready to start, and I had intended to do a page of it as a break from all of the muted colors, but I'm so excited to start the mermaid that I think I will just soldier on. I'll maybe take a break at the end of this row of pages.
In any case, enjoy! I feel like I've accomplished something, even if it is only sky.
