The cutest dragon ever!!!

I decided to sart something new as a reward for finishing Pooh Calendar well ahead of schedule (well, 5 days seems way ahead to me :) ). I picked 'Dragon's Treasure' by Gillian Brown (Cherry Tree). It's a small blackwork piece, and I finished the first of the 3 dragons last night (I couldn't go to bed until he was finished - about 11.30). I have to say that I thoroughly enjoyed stitching on this.

I took a photo af Assisi knotwork garden at the same time - Before Sunday I'd only put one length of red into this - it's coming along guite nicely, but I am finding doing this in the traditional manner (holbein/double running stitch first, followed byt the cross stitch) tricky - it's all too easy to cover the outlines with the cross stitch. But on the other hand, it's very easy to just fill in the lines - no pattern required at the moment!!
