Mythical Dragon Cross Stitch by DRAGONSEEKER789 Mythical Dragon Cross Stitch by DRAGONSEEKER789
This is the first cross stitch that I did. It is called “Mythical Dragon” by a company called Janlynn. I didn’t know it at the time but it is an advanced cross stitch. You are supposed to start with an easy one and progress onto the harder ones. DOH!!! Not jump right in with a difficult one. (I know that now!!) It took me years to finish. Literally!!! I would pick it up and do half a dozen or so stitches and then put it away again. Then I could see the arch of a wing and I was hooked. It hangs in my bedroom and I still think ‘Wow. I did that!!’

Very nice job! I too have that kit waiting in a box for me to give it a try lol. But I went with the easier kits first was afraid of mucking up such a beautiful dragon. But I've had some practice now so the next kit might just be the mythical dragon. Wish me luck!

It was difficult to do at the beginning, but once I saw the curve of a wing, I just wanted to see more. I must start to do it again. I have a half-finished wedding sampler for my cousin and as I have a new great niece I need to get that done as well. Good luck and, if you know this, sorry. I found that if I had either a white or yellow cloth on my knee, I could see the holes better. Hope you’ll show it when you’ve finished it.

Augh! That looks so cool yet so complicated! I'm only a fledgling cross stitcher myself but I really want to do it! ...And I'm afraid I'll botch it up royally. :iconsweatdropplz:

Sorry it’s taken me so long to get back to you. Real life has been quite challenging this last year, I’m glad it’s ended. I’ve not really been able to do any cross stitch, the will had just vanished. I’m doing a wedding sampler for my second cousin, she’s been married a year! A friend got married last week, I’d finished her sampler, it just needed the date adding on.  I’m going away next week and I’ll try to get some more done.
Don’t worry, this was actually the first cross stitch I did. I didn’t read the instructions properly, it said was for experienced stitches, by the time I’d finished it, I was an experienced snitcher!! XD Have you done any cross stitch? You can get nice simple ones to start off with.  If you can get a frame like this.

They are so much better than a hoop. I do worry that people won’t like the pitcher I’ve done for them, but up to now everyone has been delighted. The best thing is, even if you’ve made a small mistake, no one will notice it!! Please let me know how you go on.

Hi there.
I'm sorry but I don't have it. It was the first patten I'd ever done. I learnt that you don't mark off the chart as you have difficulty seeing where the back stitches are. Since then I've always photocopied the original and used the copy to scribble the squares off. I'm sure you could pick up the pattern from ebay?

that is awesome :) i have the pattern too and it also took me about 4 years to complete. Stitching on black aida is a near impossible task. you can only do it in enough light and it does your head in if you spend more than half an hour at a time. Congrats on completing that as you first one. Everything else would be easy in comparison.
