Page finish and new start

 Miracles happen, I managed to finish my page on Dragon Rider, I do love him. The motorbike is officially here, which I'm loving, it's probably sad just how happy the arrival of the motorbike makes me. There's one little stitch in the silver rim on the wheel that's bugging me slightly, I think when I do the next page I'm going to end up unstitching it and putting it back in a darker colour, but I'm very happy with it all the same.
Secondly I have my new start. By popular demand I present Promise to the Heart from Tilton crafts, art work by Takaki. This is technically a page finsih, although it was the worlds smallest page. The colours on this are beautiful, although I admit that it doesn't show much on this page.

Two page finishes in a week sounds pretty good to me:)

Dragon Rider looks remarkable! Usually, I don't like HAEDs so well (I know, I know, I have brain worms) but whenever I see a page finish, I'm always like, "Ohhhh, but the stitching on these looks just like paintings!" Congrats on the page finishes, they're so cool!

Congratulations on the two page finishes! Very excited for the new start ... and the wheel. Seriously if you think that getting excited about a picture formation in your own embroidery ... what does it make me? or anyone else who goes around commenting on other people's progress. Hope for as another update soon.

Lija's comment made me laugh! So true. I feel like I know some other stitchers' projects as well as my own. I think that's what's so great about blogging. Great progress on Dragon Rider and looking forward to following your new start.

Woo hoo 2 page finishes that would be a record for me. I don't care how big or small they are - it's a finish damn it!!!! LOL.

Love Promise to Heart, it's a stash for me but will live through your wip of her! So giddyup - no pressure.

Hear, hear on Lija's comment!

I feel sad when my friends complete a long-term piece because I know I won't see the progress photos anymore!

I think I can see the errant silver stitch too, is it on the bottom right of the wheel?

Considering I just got really excited about the completion of two dragon butts on my project, I don't think you have anything to worry about in terms of being excited ;) Two pages is plenty to get excited about! Congratulations!
