Breaking Dawn Loon called to me....

I started a new rotation last fall and hope to work on all my WiPs at least once this year, and return my UFOs to WiP status. This month I returned to this Marilyn Boyle design from Kustom Krafts called Breaking Dawn that I started exactly 2 years ago today! It didn't see any action for two years, but it called to me, and I made great progress this past week, starting last Thursday evening and finishing the full page today. This chart has 4 full pages and 8 half pages. This is full page 7 of the 12. The fabric is 32ct Silkweaver's Polished Brass opalescent, and it is one over one. I wanted it small!
The left pic is from two years ago and the other is from today. The true fabric color shows better in the first picture. Quite a bit of the left side of the pattern is left unstitched. It called for yellow meran 28ct, but I wanted to use a sparkly fabric, and had the Polished Brass in my stash.

I'm still debating which WiP to pull out next....the dragon afghan from last month is so close to being finished, but I need to return to Castles in the Air as well....then there is the name tree, and another biscornu calling me....not sure what I'll do next, but watch this space!


  1. It's a beauty. Good that you pulled it out of the UFO's and that it became a WIP. Love it.

  2. Very pretty.

    You do quite a few over one on very high counts! I bow in awe!

  3. great progress - it's a lovely design

  4. That is going to be awesome when you are done. Can't wait to see more progress!
