Birthstone Dragon SAL - January/Garnet

By jijikit
So FINALLY got this SAL started.  Hadn't meant to but I saw him among :iconblushiexd:'s SAL's and I was intrigued. 

THEN I made the mistake of going to the Etsy site (…) and OH MAN!  Such a cool idea and so cute!  I totally added to my "things to do" again.

Still, he IS cute and Karl argued the cost is pretty good for basically 12 dragon patterns.  :)

I'm behind two months and probably won't work on Feb until the end of this month, but that's okay.  I can't wait to get back to these guys! :loves:

Hi Gayle!  I just wanted to let you know that I've featured your work in a post called January Birthstone Dragons - Garnet on my dragon artwork blog (with proper attribution to you and the design creator, and links back, of course).  I love this piece!  You can find me at Writing Dragons, and this feature here.  I'm starting a monthly series, so I hope to share more of your stitching in future posts!  Keep up the great work.

Ah thank you for featuring my project on your blog!  I guess I better finish the other half of the year.  ;)

If you aren't already in contact with her, you can find Brittany on Facebook.  She does closed groups for her SAL's and it's fun to see how other people's progress and little changes/additions.  It's a lot of fun.  In any case, I'm sure she'd love to see that you posted her SAL.  :)

You're welcome!  If you finish them, I'll post them, lol!  I'll take a look for Brittany and drop her a note on your recommendation, I really do like these designs.  Good luck! :)

I know, right????  He deserves a name but I haven't figured out one yet.

Thanks!  How are you doing on all your SAL's?  Have you attempted the March Dragon yet?

I've been keeping up on all my SALs, so I'm super happy with it! I'm sorry I'm so late with this, but I've been sort of avoiding the internet for a few weeks (crazy stuff in real life). I'll be posting my progress on my SALs shortly though! I loved the March Dragon.

No worries!  I've been trying to keep up this year but terribly slacking in all areas this month.  Maybe Mercury is in Retrograde...  ;)

I need to post my Feb dragon and update for the Small SAL posting. 

Can't wait to start March's dragon!  (I'm exactly one month behind now! ;)

Ah, man, I may have to add that one to my list too!  :faint:

I know, right????  They are just so cute and a nice SAL!  I can't wait until the whole thing is done!

And, yeah, probably shouldn't have added it, but it was like waving candy in front of a chocolate fiend!  :faint:
