A bit of Cross Stitch

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.

I don't mind a sleeping dragon; it's the fierce fully awake ones I fear!

That sounds a bit like my eldest granddaughter!


You know the old saying:
"If you can't stand the heat - don't tickle the dragon!"
