I came across a free cross stitch pattern on the claire93 blog and just fell in love with it. I haven't done cross stitch on Aida for years, in fact I don't like it, but this pattern just had to be stitched.
I used 2 strands of Cosmo Marble Thread Col. No 26 and then stitched the label using 3 strands of DMC. The flower galand around the dragons head are held in place with colonial knots, then I gave it a shot of steam from the iron on the back that fused the flowers together. I will use this as part of a round cushion that I am making for my niece's daughter Sinead. There are some nice patterns on this site.
