Here Be Dragons

One Christmyth Dragon, actually. One in a series of thirteen freebies by Dragon Dreams.

I can tell that the dragon is twisting around and carrying mistletoe, but I cannot for the life of me figure out how it's twisting.

The Kreinik coverage is atrocious but I don't feel like frogging it and stitching in two strands, so it will have to suffice. This is my first time with perforated paper and other than being awkward to hold, I have no issues. I probably will be a wreck when it comes to cutting, specially since this is such an irregular shapes, but that's for much later.

Now I'm off to work on the phoenix.

I wonder if this suggestion woud work . . . do the patterns on regular material and then iron it onto a bonding material that will stiffen it. Then you can handle it easier . . . I HATED using oerforated paper . . . but it ends up being stiff from the iron on bonding.

Super cute! I think the Kreinik looks great--don't be so hard on yourself!

I agree with Siobhan, don't be so hard on yourself . . . it looks great but if it bothers you that bad just going over it again is a great idea. I think it looks great!
