Summer Dragon, page 4 completed.


(Click on photo to bigify)

I have just finished page four and only have two pages left to go! The picture does not do justice to all the metallics and blending filaments that are used. All the borders, except the grey areas, contain some metallic or another. Even the black rock contains metallics. So, just two pages to go and then the back stitching of the dragon. Then it's finished, woohoo!

England Heart by The Victoria Sampler

England Sampler

(Click on photo to bigify)

I finished my England Sampler by The Victoria Sampler. I am really pleased with the way it turned out. The kit came with information too.

Official Flower: English Rose
Motto: "Dieu et Mon Droit" (God and My Right)
Bird: European Robin

The offical Flower of England is the English Rose, and the Robin on the left is the official bird. The Foliage stitch under the Robin, symbolizes the wonderful green valleys that attract visitors from all over the world. The St.Georges Cross is the national Flag. The featured stitch represents the surrounding ocean (fan stitch), as well as the Thames River. Finally, at the bottom of the heart, you can find the Crown of England to celebrate the long reign of Queen Elizabeth 11!

On Monday we rang Kodak and they said they would send us a new printer head free of charge and it turned up yesterday (Wednesday), I am certainly impressed with how speedy it turned up! So needless to say, I printed out the Papillon pt 3 SAL out lol.
