Well, I got a bit more done on Padparadscha. I am starting to feel a bit more confident about my abilities as an embroidress, even to contemplating actually doing one of the Helen Stevens bird pictures, as opposed to just drooling over the photos in her books. I have an assortment of the flat silks, the ones used in the Chinese embroideries that so often crop up in the restaurants, mostly because they are drop dead gorgeous, plus the colors are to die for--or dye for, as the case may be.
Anyway, here is Paddy as far as I have gotten.
Okay, I have to post some pictures of the other dragon in my life. She is a cutie pie, and sleeps in the most silly positions.
In this picture, she was asleep, but we woke her when we took the picture.
