I got these notebooks finished up today, photographed and added to my shop here. This week I've been mostly working on some more dragon pincushions in new color combinations. I like to use some sparkly metallic thread on these but it is horrible stuff to sew with! When I first designed these, I wanted to make them breathe fire, but my daughter said they looked too friendly to be doing that so I have put some flames on the side band instead, along with the phrase, "Here there be DRAGONS". I wrote about the history of this phrase in this blog post back in April.
The blue and green dragons have metallic thread and the teal dragon has a variegated satin thread on it's wings and chest. This is a little easier to work with than the metallic thread but still seems to have a mind of it's own! I also got these finished pincushions photographed and listed in my Etsy shop today.
