Here Be Dragons

I started the Light and Shadow series by Firewing Design and finished them up pretty quick. I wanted to use up some of my leftover overdyes so I stitched them over one on 28 ct and they came out very tiny. I went with two threads that had very different variegations and two that were more subtle. And I went two silk, two cotton. So mixtures everywhere :)

Taking a good picture where you could clearly see the variegation but keeping it small enough that it wouldn't be so easy to count right off the picture was tricky (and I'm not sure I quite got the right balance so I hope these are ok).
