Oriental Courage Update

I suppose the upshot to having way too many WIP's (Works In Progress) is that if one does not feel like working on a particular project, one can always dive into the WIPocalypse bin and have at it. In this particular instance, I needed a break from browns and white, so picked my Oriental Courage Storykeep back up. I had to frog a bit on the right side of the project. There's a bit of traffic that I am having to wade through on that side and I am finding it a bit confusing. I am lucky in that in this project, in the morning I can work on the nitpicking confetti stitches when I am fresh and (relatively!) rested. In the afternoons and evenings, I am stitching the wide swaths of 817 that under normal circumstances would bore a person to tears, but is actually restful after a long and very busy day. 

Welp, at any rate, here is my progress as of a few minutes ago. It's really beginning to take shape and I am getting excited that I have only nine more rows and then I get to stitch on the dragon. Woohoo!
