double dragon

except he looks more lionine that dragon-like

I tried using some of the new blue faced liecester for his left hand head (the slightly darker one), and I do quite like it. being a longer stapled wool, the bfl is a little sturdier than the old stuff and handles split stitch better – it had far less tendency to disintigrate mid-stitch, which was always a problem with the other stuff.

  1. I wrote to you a couple of weeks ago, but have had no reply, so maybe you did not receive it. My name is Shirley Smith, and I enjoy reading your posts and following your progress. From one or two things you have said in them, I believe you to be fairly local to me. I am 15 miles east of York. I thought you would be interested in the community project I am leading, which is The Battle of Stamford Bridge Tapestry, telling the story of this 1066 battle in stitch, in the style and spirit of the Bayeux Tapestry. There is a Battle Society in S Bridge, and a re-enactment is held every year in September. Our work will be there this year, probably with the ladies from Towton, who are also creating an embroidery, though different in form from ours.

    If you are interested and would like to know more, please do contact me. Very best wishes
