Post Christmas Greetings

26 Dec

Good afternoon everyone! I hope that you all had a wonderful Christmas holiday. I am now able to post some photos of the gifts I made and I gave out this year. The first one is a dragon which I finished in August. Below is the image I found online:

I was able to use my computer to plot a pattern. For this project I used 14 count Aida cloth with gold highlights,and the shiny tinsel type of metallic embroidery thread which can bring so much sparkle to a piece.

And here is the work in progress:

After all of the Cross stitches had been finished, I use a 2 ply Rayon Sulky thread  back-stitch to outline the entire dragon. It gave it a bit more of a pop, and defined the claws and tail wonderfully.

Below is the finished piece!

Sorry for the glare!  The Symbol on the bottom right hand corner is Chinese for “DRAGON”. Of course it was squared up some to work for Cross-stitch! And when I found this beautiful frame, I knew it was a perfect fit.
