There be dragons...

Actually, their much smaller cousins, the dragonfly.  

I've really been enjoying this one.  I don't know if it's because it's a new start, a Chatelaine, beads or a combination of all three.  

Friday night, I finished the first rose bud.  There are eighteen colors, including the backstitch color, in that baby.  But the result is beautiful!

Saturday, I finished another couple rose buds and added the backstitching on the first two dragonflies.

And last night, I finished the last rose, added the remaining dragonflies and started adding beads to them.  There is a definite PITA factor to beading this way, but I love the little blingy dudes!

Ugh...

Since my last post, my mojo has taken a short leave of absence.  

I haven't managed much since my last post.

There were 115 stitches on Lust



Then to try to tempt my mojo back, I pulled out my kit for Chatelaine's Beaded Dragonfly Tile.  Here's a screenshot from chatelaine.de


I didn't get very far, in part because we had a basketball tournament all weekend.  I'm stitching on 28ct white Monaco.

They kinda look like chickens...

Last week was fairly productive.

I think the long tailed animals are probably supposed to be dragons of some nature, but they kind of look like chickens with the combs on top of their heads.

Now, Lust is back out to hopefully see some good progress and the end of the flames!
