Since I'm hoping to unveil the dragon on Friday (...this may be a lost hope), I don't want to give too much away today, so here's a not-terribly-mysterious photo of a piece of it. I worked this piece while watching The Simpsons the other night, which resulted in a lot of tiny bouts of frogging because I was snickering at Milhouse rather than counting my stitches, hah.
Still to go: three of four legs. :|
I think I'll keep it (not-terribly-) mysterious this week and not describe my other projects in very much detail, either. This is going to be a sweet little yarny tidbit to be displayed on a plate, and while I loved working up the (tiny! I didn't even have to make it smaller! it was already perfectly small!) pattern, the sewing bits will probably cause it to hibernate for a little while.
I've done a bit of needle-felting recently, and most of it is already finished (!), mailed off to new homes, and will be appearing on Friday. But this one is still a WIP, shown here mid-stab. My iPod is in the background for research purposes here! Very important, evil-pig-slaying research.
And this week's springtime WIP-by-a-tree, a newborn maple leaf. This is my favourite maple tree (but don't tell the trees I play favourites) on one of my usual walking routes. It's a younger tree, so even someone as short as I am can cozy right up to its lower branches and enjoy the shade and prettiness. I love how the baby leaves are the same sort of brand-new wrinkly as a butterfly's wings when it emerges from its cocoon.
