I finally started working on Samurai! And as you can probably tell by the post title I finished it too. I was going to break this up into two posts, but I wasn't near my computer for the past week, so you're getting it all in one post!
When I first saw the picture of this one on Fire Wing Designs' website I just fell in love with it. I loved the dragon, I loved the colors. Most of the other Signets I'm probably going to change the fabric or the thread, or both, but not this one. I love how he looks in the picture so that's what I'm going to use.
I started this last week, after I did a bit the fabric looked a little small, sure enough it was, I'd cut it too small. I was so mad at myself. I had the rest of the Valor cloth, and it was big enough. So I started again.

Oh my gosh! I hadn't been to the Fire Wing Designs site for a while... and she has three new pieces! I am lusting after Nocturne! I must get this piece!! The blue on blue is just gorgeous! I think I'll use the same colors as the sample like I did on this piece, but I might add some sparklie to the wings.
