07. Dessins DHC Bande des Dragons

Bande des Dragons by Dessins DHC
stitched on 14 count aida from Hell

Why I gave up on this one:
An alphabet and dragons, what's not to love?  Answer - the fabric. I bought some 14 count aida and some variegated Anchor threads, a gorgeous dark red (1206) at 50p a skein from my LNS. Price has doubled in the last 17 years.

The aida is awful; hard, scratchy and coated with something weird.  I struggled on, getting a friction burn on my wrist and complaining all the time.  Last time I moaned about the piece Christine had the brilliant idea of finishing the part of the border I was doing and calling that a finish.  Which is what I have done.
