I worked for a long time yesterday on this needlelace golden brown tree twining its way round the trunk of another tree. I think it makes the green tree more balanced, plus it shades the little cross stitch dragon sheltering beneath it. This for a crazy patch dragon round robin in which I am participating. Posted by Hello

Arlee, I did a foundation of chain stitch then blanket stitched into and over the chain stitch but not through the fabric. I very often do this with several different threads, thick and thin, metallic and silk, whatever works, but this time used just one of my hand dyed perle cottons. Several rows for the tree trunk, but several times into one row on the branches. May just run some gold metallic through it before it is totally finished, though. Thanks for your comment.
