D

Is for dragon (Well, duh!)

He’s basically the puppy dog dragon, but done in silk appliqué. I’m pretty much doing medieval mixed media here.

It was my original intention that all the lettering be done in the same dark brown/black, but I realised that dragon had to be written in fire.

I’m having loads of fun with this. There is a very strong chance that it won’t even get shortlisted for the competition, but I don’t care.

IN other news, there’s still time to order a Christmas stitchalong dragon kit

In other other news, I got a new laptop at last, so I’ll try and sort out the sidebar photos and shop soon. Gareth has accepted it as normal, or at least girlfriend normal, that I got not in the least bit excited about my shiny new MacBook, but got very animated and explained to him in great, and very enthusiastic detail about how lovely my new £25 planishing hammer is instead. I actually got more excited about the Hokusai cover I bought for the laptop than I did about the computer.

  1. I remember seeing a medieval hunting scene with antlers attached to it, so I get the feeling that medieval mixed media genuinely happened.
