Lavender and Dragons

The flu and insomnia are not a good combination as it is 1am and I am still wide awake. I have been straightening up my stash because I want to enter in some Art/Sci competitions in the next year, and I am also participating in some Mirabilia stitch-a-longs that I will post when I start them in the new year! Although I have mostly done cross stitch, I am trying to branch out in some different types of embroidery. Here is a little piece I did to practice some different stitches. I might put some weights on the edges to turn it into a mug cover.

Here is another epic piece I have been working on for a long time, just need to finish some beading! It is Celestial Dragon by Teresa Wentzler. It is the first piece I really worked with blending filament and seed beads. It is approximately 11″x14″ on 32 count linen.

I bought a couple of historical coif patterns I hope to start working on this year. I love embroidery and would really like to branch out into more fiber and textile arts as I go along! I am also working on a large long arm cross stitch void work piece, I will post pics of it soon.
