Stitching: Dragon Finish!

I've completed last years SAL! Only six months behind which is, sadly, pretty good for me. 

This piece was fun as the colour schemes were known in advance (so you could collect DMC colours) but the type of dragon and pose were not. I think my two favourites are the sleeping dragon and the snake-like dragon (middle bottom row). In fact the snake-like dragon kind of looks like one of our pet snakes!

Dragons done with DMC Floss
Border done with 'Sable' by Gentle Art Sampler

All birthstones omitted by design. I may add some stones or jewels to this at a later date but for now I like my dragons just as they are. That does; however, leave the green (tiny dragon in middle) appear to be an acrobat as he 'stands' on his tail. 

This finish should have opened the door for a new start but I'm holding back and going to catch up on my other two SALs and my husband is bugging me about poor neglected Alice. So I guess its time she went back into the rotation! 

Happy Stitching!

Great finish! Do you have corn snakes? I have two and the dragon you mentioned reminds me of his markings. :)
