I know you are all on the edges of your seats…biting your nails…It is FINISHED! The Dragon is coloured, the letters are lettered. The whole thing is signed (btw: I have a signature now), framed, and handed off!
The tech gifts are also finished, but those will be posted tomorrow.
Today is all about DRAGONS.
I like the way it looks in the frame 🙂 It turned out to be about 8 x 10 in.
Here’s a detail shot of the dragon:
I used three threads on it, first outlining and then filling in the colour. I chose half stitch because a) it was far too difficult to make full stitches with three threads on 22 count Aida and b) I think it looks more like scales anyway.
I don’t know if this counts as embroidery. I tried to copy this from a picture (without tracing or anything), but I think it turned out pretty alright. I don’t think I’ll do it again any time soon, though.
And I started putting a signature on my pieces too:
I’ve started a new piece already, and should have a lot of time for stitches over the next two weeks, as my internet source at work is leaving for China for two weeks 😛
I’ll be finished with the new one soon, and then start on a NEW new one 😀
Always, comments are welcome.
