Dragon Boo: First Post

My apologizes, I've been absent again.  At least it's not as long as last time.  I got caught up on a few books, then my cable modem died so I had to purchase a new one, then get it set up with my internet provider.

I don't normally do very many seasonal pieces, but then I saw this one, and there are four more.  I thought they were cute.  And looking at the other three that goes with it, Dragon Love, Dragon Noel and Dragon Hoppy, and how small they are, I just couldn't resist.

I first changed the lettering for the "Boo" from regular black to the black high luster.

And so I added in colors that I found in my stash.

Then I had to buy two colors, I ran out of the light green, and I couldn't find my glow in the dark white, yep, the little ghost glows in the dark!

Now I just need to do the back-stitching and I'm not really in the mood to do it, so I'll finish it up next month.
