My place to ramble on about cross stitching, designing and anything else that takes my fancy!

Well this month my ort jar overfloweth! What a great feeling!
You can see all the metallic bits from the Samurai and the Christmas card...amongst many others!
Speaking of the Samurai...I think a big trumpet fanfare is in order because.....
Here are some close up pics of the last details that I worked on.
Metallic lazy daisy dragonflies
The beading at the hem.
The cording at his swords
Hope the strange angles don't make you dizzy, but I thought it was kind of arty looking at the time, and if truth be told, it was really the only way to show the details!!
And, ta-da.... here he is in all his glory.
So now, of course, I'm thinking about what to stitch next. This is what I have had my eye on for a long time, but I think I may have to ask Santa to bring it to me!! I even know where I would hang it when it's complete! (how sad is that!!)
I also have some fantastic news which I will reveal...tomorrow. I know, I'm such a tease!
