Day 7 of CJC

Today's pick was Blackwork Dragon by Dragon Dreams. I had this one in my stash forever I kept wanting to start it. I finally took my chance today. Here is where I got...
You can't tell very well in this picture I guess but the fabric is a beautiful pinkish/purpleish sparkly linen. I had received it from a lady I did model stitching for. The thread is a Victorian Motto Sampler Shoppe Hand Dyed Floss called Violet Mist. I received it in a grab bag exchange. So it's a hodge podge of stash and I love it. Just as I had hoped it was a really fun piece to work on. I already pouted about having to put it down haha. But I will be back to it soon enough. 8 more starts to go.

Brr right now it's 1 degree out and the windchill is -10. Getting colder they said as the night goes on too. We've been hiding inside pretty much. Izzy (our dog) doesn't even want to go outside as often as normal.

  4. Awesome dragon and you've already slain quite a lot of it! I like how you have pulled the materials together from stash. The fabric and floss really complement each other.

  5. I'm not a fan of blackwork but seeing as this is purples and lilacs I love it! You must have stitched like the clappers on this one to complete so much in one day. And stop pouting - it's not becoming of a lady! :)
