After finishing the little Moon & Back stitch over the weekend, my need for needles and thread has come front and center again. An artist I follow on Twitter, Lee (@StoneDragonWS) has recently opened an Etsy store and I love his patterns! His pixel art translates flawlessly into cross stitch. I bought all the designs he had available back over the Christmas holiday, but he’s adding more all the time!
I decided to start with the Treasure Dragon. The PDF file itself is a work of art. I mean, just look at this beauty!
I started on Monday night after stopping at Michaels to pick up the required embroidery floss (although I’m 99.9% positive I already had the colors, I just like going to Michaels and buying more embroidery floss).
I didn’t get much done due to attention-seeking kittens and impossibly tangling thread, but I like that my hoop looks like a guy with a monocle and a little mustache. (I’m writing this well past my bed time, can you tell?)
I got some more done tonight.
Still looks like mustached monocle guy, which I still dig. But I’m starting to get up into the non-coin treasure part of the dragon’s treasure. I’m actually almost to the dragon’s tail. So far, I am really digging this pattern! I’m alreayd looking forward to tomorrow night when I can work on this some more! Check back in for the finished piece.
