March re-cap (a bit late, I know)

I know, it's ridiculously late, apparently I didn't achieve much in March.
This is where I started Dragon Rider
This is where I finished!
In other news my writing went quite well (a lot better than it's gone this month so far), I managed a word count of 12427.

Heather returns

She's looking a bit surreal at the moment. I'm doing all the outlining on this row for this rotation. There's a odd sort of logic for this. I'm thinking that I'm going to take Heather to the Craft Retreat in June, which means that I can then do all the filling in without having to count and so without having to worry about miscounting and messing up because I'm not concentrating!

Another couple of days should do it

I've nearly finished, and as the title says, another couple of days should finish it, then I'll be back into my rotation, and mostly done with presents. My only remaining present is my long term project for my mum, so I can get back to my own things for a while!

I've recently redesigned my rotation, meaning that I have priority 1, priority 2 and everything else, so some projects will work up more quickly than others. It's ridiculously complicated, but it works for me.
If you're interested my rotation now works like so:
A, B, C, D, A, E, F, G, A, B, C, D, A, G, H, I, A, B, C, D, A, J, K, L and so on. See, needlessly complicated, but works for me. If you're interested A is Dragon Rider, B, C and D are Heather, Cloudsfactory Calendar and Family Values, and everything else is everything else.
When A B C or D are completed, something else will get promoted to being a priority piece. I'm hoping it means that having priority projects will mean that I get to see more progress on those (well, of course it will, duh!), but it means that it'll be a longer time between each time I work on other projects. It's logical in my head. Having a basic rotation meant I was only working on each project once a year, so this way means more attention to some, but other might go a couple of years at the moment.
Happy Stitching all!

Page finish!

Here's my page finish on Dragon Rider, which I'm very excited about, and a page finish means that I unroll it and show a full picture thus far.
Loving seeing the wings come together and I'm debating where to go next. I know the next page down would be the obvious route, but I don't want to end a project working on a page full of tree or similar, so I'm tempted to work round the edge and then finish on the dragon. Hmmm, not sure, but I've got a little while to think about it.
Happy stitching all!
