New start

Happy Wednesday everyone! After my big finish I decided on a quick and easy Signet dragon by Fire Wing designs. I've already done Warrior this year, and 3 of the 4 little ones. This one is called Paladin. Earlier this year an online friend of mine whom I've known for ages moved into his very own apartment, and while he was taking pictures, I noticed that something I made ages ago was on his kitchen wall.

I sorta laughed at how simple and small it looks now, and earmarked Paladin for him, but first I had to finish what I was already working on!

I chose a fabric from my stash called Storm Gray, and I'm using Threadworx in Lava Rocks. Any picture you might see of this fabric does not do it justice. It really looks like a stormy sky. Absolutely love looking at it! Here is a start to it:

And I wonder why I get so much cat hair in my stitching that I have to pick out.. :)

That's about it for now. Less chat, more stitch!


  1. What a cute gift for your friend. I think it is cool how he still has it.

    You have a great start and I think the fabric is going to be perfect. I love the name of the fabric.

  2. awww that's nice he still has it :) and love the colour of that fabric .. and speciality threads are all the rage you know ;) love mouse xxxxx

  3. what fun to see an 'old' stitch still loved! Am going to see if i can find some 'stormy' linen also......saw that you are a WOW fan husband and i are addicts also, hehehe.....and yes, it does cut into stitching a great weekend!

  4. I think you should use your cat hair in your cross stitch and then sell it for too much money because it's living art.


I like comments! :)
