Thanks Eliea, it put a smile on my face to see it on someone's wist!  Looking at your profile I saw we have a lot of interests in common, if I had more time I would say we should do a personal swap! And where were you during the Pern swap?  I wanted to see more Pern crafts!  Wink

I wasn't but I saw it in recent with pics and had to comment on the crocheted dragonlets in the swap. I agree it does seem like we have a lot in common. I to am behind in my crafts though and holidays are right around the corner. *pulls out hair* perhaps after the holidays. Smiley

Those dragons were very cute! After the holidays I'll probably be busy with all the swaps that are being put off till after the holidays! Can't win for losing!  Anyway, since you've read the pern books it makes the compliment even better.

I've just (literally, the last few days) started reading these books. My parents read them years and years ago and I've finally got round to it! I love your map, and I think you've done it wonderfully!

That looks amazing. I've never seen embroidery on a painting before. I like it. And while I love the way the dragon looks, it kind of hurts too. I love Dragonsinger! Awesome job.

It hurts to see a book harmed? If it helps it really was falling apart, it had been well loved.  If I wasn't a crafter I might have thrown it away.  This way it gets a new life.

This clearly took a lot of work. I am not patient enough to sit and do hand embroidery. It came out beautiful.  Smiley

Thank you, the worst part was embroidering the edges.  Trying to take out as few staples as possible and trying to hit the right spot at an angle.  Plus the canvas was a little hard to punch through.

Crafting keeps the madness at bay. Or is it the cause?

What a great art concept and you executed it beautifully with a lot of thought.  I especially love the repurposed book page as the dragon.  How big is it?
