Guardian of Wayfarers - 50 Hours

Originally, I had planned to get my WIPocalypse post up today, but then it occurred to me that it would be nice to link that together with my Q2 statistics post, and for that to happen, Q2 needs to be completely over, which it isn't yet (a whooping 4 hours left to go!). However, it just so happened that I finished my newest rotation on Guardian of Wayfarers today, and I think none of you will be sad to see this one instead!

Last time, I was making my way through the massive blue background:

And about 1.7k stitches and 10 hours later, I still am:

But, as you can see, I'm following along on the edge of the circle, which is quite fun, I got to add a bit to the dragon's wing, AND, as you might be able to just make out on the right side, I reached the foliage, which is still background-y, but a bit less boring. So next time, I'll probably alternate working on that, and filling in more of the monochrome areas in the left half of the circle. Strangely, still looking forward to it! 

This is, by the way, a little over 22% of the design done now, including backstitch, so still quite a while to go. Good thing I'm enjoying this!

It's fun watching this piece grow, Leonore! You always amaze me with these full coverage pieces. Hope you have a relaxing weekend ahead. It is the 4th of July weekend here, but with my husband still testing positive it will be a quiet one (which is just fine with me!). Take care now ♥

This is looking fabulous. I like the way the circle is appearing now.
