Several years ago (2007) I was in a UFORR (my third UFO-RR, I believe), and sent off my Chinese Dragon. Susan, the mod in charge of the RR was just in front of me (I think?) and she took it upon herself to ask me if she could keep it a bit longer to stitch extra on it. Of course! was my reply - after all it was a UFO for a reason. My aunt had bought this pattern and kitted it up for me, but it's not really my style, so I have a hard time stitching on it. But, it was a gift, so I really want to get it done. I suspect that not much stitching got done on it by the other stitchers in the RR when Susan received it ;) .
Cue a few moves on my part and life and everything, and Susan had it a little longer than either of us planned, though we were never out of touch. Susan is amazingly responsible, so I never worried about it, I was more worried I'd forget to tell her where I was living. Well, she finally decided it was time for the dragon to go home, but WOW! the progress!!!
Here's how I sent it off in 2007
And here's how it was returned to me!
An entire page (of a four page chart) is done, and it's mostly solid stitching, though Susan did warn me about the multiple color changes.
I feel like there's an actual chance this guy will get done some day! I think the hardest part will be stitching on aida, it's my least fabric fabric but I chose it since the design is solid stitching, I thought it would be better.
