So, where does that leave me now? I think it's time for an update! I designed a new embroidery pattern inspired by the Anglican hymn "All Things Bright and Beautiful," the lyrics of which were made popular by the James Herriot veterinary books. It is stitching up pretty quickly, so here is a picture of how it looks right now:

Naturally, because I have been busy with this piece, I haven't made a terrific amount of progress on "Celestial Dragon." Nonetheless, I have made some headway - I filled in some dark blue and gold on the dragon's body, and I (mostly) finished his feet and gave him talons.

Oh, and after reviewing the feedback from my previous entry, I will maintain the current frequency of my e-mail updates for all of you who are subscribed (approximately 2-3 e-mails per week). Thank you for your subscriptions, including the new readers who joined this week!
I will leave you today with this lovely little piece, "A Day at the Beach" by Nikki Leeman. I bought it to stitch while I am on the beach! I am hoping to have it finished by the time I am back in Boston.
