Throw Back Thursday

DragonWinterMoon

My Throw Back Thursday this week is Dragon of the Winter Moon from Dragon Dreams. I just put this up as my Facebook cover photo, as it seemed appropriate. I stitched this, along with Dragon of the Summer Sky for Tim years ago (as you can see by the date on the photo). Sadly, they have yet to be framed because I am waiting for Tim to find some beautiful pictures he took of Neuschwanstein Castle when he was stationed in Germany. These are postcard quality photos, and apparently he got such a great view by repelling off a very high bridge. Young guys in their 20s, right?

Anyway, I want to get these two dragons framed so that one or two pictures of the castle are in the center with a dragon on each side, facing inward. The castle in both designs reminded me of that castle, and until he finds those photos and I can frame them the way I want, nothing else will do!

Dragons

(Hmmm, I just noticed that I only dated one of them. I will have to rectify that.)

  4. They WERE fun! The only bit I didn’t care for was the part stitched in rayon floss, and that’s because the stuff is so darn slippery. I like the effect, though — and I love working with metallics. The variegated area in the wings is Caron Waterlillies silk, which is beautiful to work with. Thanks for everyone’s kind words. 🙂
