At last………finished!


Hi guys,

I have been very quiet for a  few  weeks and the reason is below:


I let Duncan pick a Dragon cross stitch about 3 years ago and I did say that I would do it for Christmas………in my wisdom I never said which Christmas ( Good thinking on my part). While you have the colour thread I also had to use filament which I had never heard of. As soon as I received it, I started on the project. I could not get on with the filament at all so it was put away until last Easter. I went to my mates……..Paperlace………..and unpicked it all ( this was about 30 stitches) and started all over again but with a new tool…….thread heaven…………….which I think is better than sliced bread. It was put away a few times due to other crafty projects and work but I finally finished just after the New Year!!!!! I have to say it drove me up the wall quite a few times but I am so proud of the finished Dragon……..even Duncan is impressed.


I have now started on another project so watch this space.

Please let me know what you think?

Luv Jane XX
