Blogger Reporting for February SFS2015

This is the place to log-in/report for all participating bloggers in SFS2015-A group.
It worked out quite well for my helpers to grab people's info from here and log them into the giant spreadsheet; so thanks to them and for all of you for reporting!

This link list to report for February (for bloggers) will remain open from Feb 21 - 28.
Please ensure your SFS post is at the top of your blog and adheres at minimum to this basic template:
Month: (the month you're reporting in for!)
Spent: (the amount you spent from your budget)
Earned: (put the amount earned from finishes that month!)

Of course we want pictures and more information if you'd like!! This is merely the minimum requirement for reporting. Please ensure you link to the exact SFS post on your blog and not your general blog page.

Issues, concerns, confused, etc?  
Please feel free to leave a comment here and I will respond via email or comment back if you don't have an email connected to your blogger profile.

Dragons Update - So close I can taste it!

Ever feel like you've been working on something forever and you can't imagine it ending? Or read a book you wish wouldn't end, but you really want to read the end to know what happens?

This conflict is how I am feeling about Dragons almost being complete... almost.
Yesterday I finished the 2nd to last page. There was a lot of yellow, ivory and white. While it's quick, it's boring. And who knew it took so many hours to put in that many rows of all in a row stitches!

And so I present Dragons, with only 1 (one!) page to go:
 This shows all of the second last page (including the dragons head), and the final page location of course.
Dragons in their entirety to date. I know the excitement of them is long gone as the bulk of the interesting dragons has been done for awhile. But it's still exciting to me to see each area grow. I am on track for my goal of April to be complete.
That said I have until end of May, if I need, to get it framed and into the stitching competition that our famous Calgary Stampede, holds each year. I haven't entered anything in a few years, and while I am quite certain Dragons won't win (it's not the 'style' of what usually wins) I figure it deserves it's 10 days on public display. LOL!

Otherwise things are coming along. I just resisted the urge to go and check out eBay. Which means that I've gone an entire long weekend without checking!!! (it's Family Day here in Alberta, so day off work which is always nice).
Happy Stitching!
