Just a little dragon progress

I don't feel like I accomplished much this round on Magnificent Wizard, but here is the latest - seems like I spent half the time picking out stray cat hair from the black fabric (it's not as noticeable on other colors...). This time I focused on the right side - the dragon's wing and castle. Of course, stitching black on black is a challenge of its own. Click the photo for a larger one.

I pulled out Kitty Litter last night to stitch next. Not sure if I mentioned this before, but I was having a very hard time with the chart - the color of the symbols (and backstitching lines) on the key did not match the those on the chart. While it wasn't as bad for the symbols, since there was only one of each of them (not a red heart and a blue heart and a black heart, as I've had in some other Dimensions kits / charts), it was extremely confusing for the backstitching lines. I contacted Dimensions about it (through their online form), and was amazed when a new copy of the chart and key showed up in my mailbox one day several weeks after that. I honestly did not expect to hear from them, but I guess others had that issue too. +1 for Dimensions Crafts customer service!
