Obviously, baby was going to make another appearance. I want to use more purples on this fantasy, cos purple and dragons go together.
i have to do the creature above first, before I can fill the background.

This blog is solely for textiles, with a little bit of silversmithing now and then, and will mainly be for my historical stuff.
Please do not use my images or pin them without permission.
My interests range from ancient greek to tudor periods, and I tend to be an artisan rather than an academic - not that I don't do research, I just prefer getting my hands dirty.
I dye, spin, weave, sew and embroider, and have been doing so for several decades...
