Warrior: First Post

I'm such a bad stitcher.  I started another Signet.  This time it's Warrior.  I'm using the thread used in the stitched sample.  It's called Rocky Mountain, it's rather pretty.  It has three different colors, brown, a smoky blue and green.

I didn't like the fabric color it was stitched on.  It looked too yellow.  After much consideration, I picked a fabric by Pucture this Plus called cauldron.  It's referred to as a medium silver gray with burnt orange smudges.  I thought that might look good on a piece called Warrior.  Maybe he's an older warrior in grayish armor that is slightly rusted, the burnt orange smudges.

Initially I started him because I was afraid the fabric was too dark, but he just came alive and I couldn't put him down.  I'm still in my I don't want to work on anything except what I want to work on mood, so if I find something I really want to work on I might as well.

The first picture I took has his tail and, I think I can call that a shoulder, done.

This is pretty much where he is now, I've worked on him a little bit more, all that's left is his wing.  At least his head isn't last like the previous two.

I think I'm going to finish him up, he's very close to being done.  You might see him completed tomorrow!
