1st Finish of the Year

He's finished!!!
Pattern: Blackwork Dragon by Dragon Dreams
Random piece of fabric from stash. Sorry no name.
Thread is Victorian Motto Sampler Shoppe Hand Dyed Floss called Violet Mist
Started for CJC Day 7. Finished Jan 27th.  Took 7 Days of Work.

Now I'm going to do a small Mill Hill kit. I found a huge stack of them at a garage sale this past summer. My goal is to try to do one a month this year so I will end up with some finished rather than just sitting there. The first one mom picked from the stack is Forest Frosty. It's from 1996. Cost me a whopping $1. Here is what it will look like...
Oh and just in case you are following along. Mom's new dish receiver didn't fix the problem. So I'm waiting now for the service tech to show up. At least he was able to come today.
