Eldar update #2

Page one of 12 is complete...

Well, except for 4 squares in the lower right hand corner and a few squares in the bottom yellowish block.  I didn't have that color of floss this weekend, so can't do them till I go to Hobby Lobby and get the floss (DMC 3855).

I didn't do those few green colors because each square was a different color and they continue into the next block, so I will pick them up as I move on to page 2.

One of the most interesting things to me as I've been stitching this is to see how the colors play off each other.  For example, the wing of the dragon--which is that huge yellow/orange section.  The top edge is black then a Garnet color then the varying shades of brown and yellow.  I was skeptical about that Garnet floss, it just seemed too "out there" but it works!  It gives a nice depth to the image.  I can't wait to see how this all pulls together!
(Here's the complete picture, just for comparison!)

I checked. I don't have that color or I would send it to you. I think I have just about every other color though! Elder is looking good! I just love his face!
