I'd like to show you a bit more progress on The Dragon's Tea Party. I have been moving very quickly on this piece and am pleased with my progress. You can see the guest beginning to take shape, a wizard in purple robes and hat. The purple is all done in the old discontinued DMC Rayon floss. Luckily, I had the two purples required in my stash ... something of a miracle since I had only 7 skeins of rayon floss in all in stash. It's not my favorite thing, being a nasty and slippery fiber. I am using only 12" lengths of the stuff in an effort to tame it somewhat
I am holding off stitching the wizard's hat's brim and his hair and beard while I decide whether or not I want to use Whispers in white for the brim [thereby turning it into fur trim] and in grey for the hair and beard. I need to check my stash of Rainbow Gallery fibers to see if I have enough for this project. If I do decide to use the Whispers, I'll have to stitch them last anyway. This is hardly a problem since there is so much else left to stitch.
