First Finish of 2021

I did say that this will be the first finish of 2021, I just didn't realise how long it would take me to get around to it.

Teresa Wentzler - Tracery Dragons

The last bit that was left were the branches that are backstitched and then whipped.

For the eyes, I decided to deviate from the pattern and use beads. These are size 15/0 hex cut beads that I purchased a while back from the JEC. They have a blue green sheen to them, perfect for the blue dragons

The great thing about finishing this piece, I can finally put away all these threads. They've been in this box since 2015. There were two or three threads that were shared with another cross stitch and I kept losing track of them. It will be good to have them in one place for once.


  1. It's always encouraging to have a finish, isn't it!

  2. This is a gorgeous design and looks great on that fabric. Nice idea to use the beads too.

  3. OMGoodness, this is so beautiful! They are hidden so well.

  4. What an amazing finish! Well done. Do you know what you'll be doing with it yet?
