"Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing. " -Helen Keller

Stitching Post Saturday 6/20

I am almost 100% done with the modified Dragon of Air for Dee's All About Me Round Robin. Not only did I change teh colors, but I changed some of the Xs to specialty stitches. I think it kind of looks like scales on the dragon's chest and I love the satin stitching on the wing. I ran out of one of the colors and got a replacement skein last night so it will be 100% done tonight. Wooohooooo!
And, I got back my All About Me RR. I absolutely LOVE everything that has been done so far but there is still a lot of area to fill in. Any volunteers?
Check out what everyone else has been up to... Stitching Post Saturday on MiPa's blog.

Cute!

I haven't cross stitched in awhile. My bag is on my shelves though.

Very cute. Many years ago I once started a large dragon sampler that alas I never finished. I ended up giving it to my BFF and I don't think she finished it either. Kinda sad cause it was super cool.
