Christmas dragon stitchalong?
OK, So I didn’t do a stitchalong this year because I’ve been having supply problems with embroidery wool and so wouldn’t have been able to cope with too many kits. Hopefully I’m close to resolving this and will be able to do a big dye batch in the new year.
This is a project I want to do for me. It’s sort of medeivalish, and will be done in laid and couched work, but possibly with some metallic thread and few sparkly bits (I haven’t properly decided yet) and it would be to my original design, and probably cushion sized.
Obviously this is just a fairly messy preliminary sketch which needs considerable tidying up. He’s a big sleepy smaug-like dragon, wearing a santa hat, and snoozing on a big pile of presents and toys.
I think he’d make a fab stitch-along because he’d work wonderfully in both bright and subtle colours, and there would be a good mix of basic and advanced work, plus lots of room for individual variations by the addition of whatever shiny tat each individual stitcher fancied adding.
Anyone fancy it? I’d do the kits june, to start July and finish in time for Christmas so you could have him for your own celebrations or give him as a gift.
I also fancy doing an embroidered bauble with four small silk embroidered panels – santa dragon, Christmas kitty, celtic Christmas tree, and zombie snowman (which you could chop and change, so if you wanted to miss one panel and do two of another that would work just as well). I could also do kits and possibly simultaneous stich-along for this, because I’m probably going to do it anyway.
