Dani, the Stitching Dragon

The weekend is starting off good for me. I finished all the stitching on Dani, the Stitching Dragon and I even finished it into a flat fold. I had some interesting moments while I was putting the flat fold together. Normally, I use regular craft glue but today I discovered it was empty so I had to use my glue gun. I have to say I prefer to use craft glue than a glue gun and I have the burn to prove it!

I am quite pleased with how it turned out. I chose some dark blue fabric with stars to use for the finishing fabric. It has it's own place of honor in our bedroom on top of the mirror on my dresser. It has a ledge that I keep different stitched projects on for display.

I am not sure what I will be working on this weekend. I kind of have an itching to start something new but I don't know what I really want to start!

Have a great weekend!

Dawn, Dani is so cute. Can I ask where you got your instructions to make your flat fold...I want to try this with a few of my unearthed treasures from years gone by!

Congtrats on the finish, and finish-finish! (completing the stitching, then finishing it into a flatfold) ;) It's so cute - and so apt for many, many of us, I'm sure :) That saying is the kind of thing I think about 3 times a day! ;)

Your dragon looks great! Makes me want to drag her out of my own stash and stitch her up. :) Congratulations on the happy dance!
