When Memories Fade

When Memories Fade is finished. It turned out ok I think although I didn't pay much attention to the the stitch guide.  Her very Velvet black hair doesn't show up very well, but it is a braid, twisted into an eight and left to,hang down. Stash coughed up the perfect little abalone shells for barrettes. Overall I'm pleased with this painted canvas, but still not a fan!

Don't Mess With Dragons

Dragons is finally finished.  He sure took a lot of beads!  The background and dragon are all done in Criss-Cross Hungarian, but the dragon is 2-ply floss  The dragon's  "Fill" is beads, where the background's is a single tent stitch, also the background is a pale green to match the sage-on-sage canvas.  Can't seem to win with the photos!  Its going to need some blocking before being framed.
