I've been having so much fun looking at the stitiching I thought I'd share one of my own. It's a Dragon Dreams design and I just recently had it framed.

A close up. The eggshell and star are done in light effects thread but the sparkle doesn't show here.

I love this.  I have loads of dragonalia around my home and I love this take on Christmas decorating.

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

I was so intrigued by the subject title. He really did hatch an egg. Good job.

Thanks everyone! I love fantasy themes but I don't get as much done as I'd like. I have loads of patterns though.

This design was an ornament but it turned out so nice I decided to have it framed. I'm learning a lot of great tips for projects on this site beyond the typical stitch and frame though. That's what I love about this place! That and everyone is so friendly and supportive.

Unfortunately, the person I made this for, who loves dragons, couldn't tell what the little guy was. Oh well, we're in 'gator country so I guess his confusion is understandable.  Grin

Very nicely done, and I can see a bit of the light effects.

I've not tried that thread is it any different than working with regular?

Working with light effects is horrendous! It makes a beautiful finished project but it's very stiff. It twists and catches on the fabric if I'm not careful. Of course there's always the possibility I'm doing something wrong.  Embarrassed

The picture is neat and the work is really good!

There's a technique I read about, when working with two strands, to "split" the threads with the needle before making the stitch. It keeps the stitches a little apart and gives better coverage. I find that it takes longer than regular stitiching though, so I usually only use it for special projects.  Smiley
