Pictures!

I fiiiiiinally found my camera (no I haven't taken the French knot pics yet but I have not forgotten!) . . . so I was finally able to take some finished pics I've been meaning to take for a while now.

The first one is a baby bib I started quite a few years ago. I had done all but most of the head, the right side of the carrots and some of the backstitching. And I still don't know why I put it down. But I came across it when I was sorting through a few things in a box (along with a picture I started of a unicorn gong up a path to a yellow castle . . . much less finished). And I put on the miniseries of Dune and finished it. It took me 4-ish hours to finish.



This next one has been finished since 1992. However, my granny had had it with her stuff to wash/press/frame. And she had never gotten around to it. I had been hoping the cornucopia/veggie pic was still there as well as the pegasus. Dunno where those went to, but hey, I'm still happy this was found. There was also a beautiful needlepoint I'd done of three carosel horses, but stupid moths had gotten to it. It'll cost me a fortune, ok maybe $20, to get matching yarns to fix. Boo.

And I can fiiiiinnally post a picture of Dragon of the Summer Sky. Not that I was waiting to surprise anyone or I hadn't finished it. No . . . the problem was I sometimes get lazy and forgetful. And of course . . . when I do remember, I'm nowhere near either camera or finished stitching. Bother.

But here it is!





And finally . . . after two starts, some fading, a whole lot of whinging over the background . . . I launch the Space Tiger (aka No other home by Dimensions)





I will post another one later of my wip pics, but finished pics are fun! Wooo I found the camera!
