the luck dragon

by the time we got home from our trip i was just itching to start some new embroidery. it seems i've become the kind of person who just can't sit still in one place unless i've got something in my hands to work on...and so, in the time since we've been back i've almost finished the above dragon! a luck dragon to be exact and he will soon be sewn into a pillow to go in our living room once i finish his scales, talons, and the flames. if you click on the image, it will show you a larger version and you can see all the detail of the different stitches. i'm pretty satisfied with him so far but anxious to see him all set in his pillow. john thinks we should name him though...maybe fred? :)

LOVE!! He's so pretty!

I really HAVE to get over to sublime stitching. I keep filling up a shopping cart there, and then not getting anything. :\ Time to take the plunge I think.

thanks! it's been a challenging but fun one to work on for sure..i hope i do him justice!

the sublime stitching patterns are nice because you can use simpler stitches if you're a beginner or get really fancy with them..very adaptable to all skill levels.
