two finishes!

One's mine and one's not. :p These are photos, not scans... turns out my scanner isn't compatible with Windows 7. Oops. At least the camera works fine, and it's actually a better choice for showing off the bling on these two. :3

First up is my finish, TW's Dragon Rampant. Yes, I've featured him before, but now he's 100% finished with the netting in the border. Glamour shots ahoy! :3

And my girlfriend finally finished Mirabilia's Sweet Pea. I did the random beading (the stuff not on the main part of the figure or the brown curlies) because she couldn't stand it anymore. :p She looks great!

What's next? I'm working on Mirabilia's Titania and an ancient Dimensions kit called Ballet Still Life which I've had for about 15 years. It's old, it's ugly, and I have no idea why I got it (hey, I was about 15 at the time, how should I know what I was thinking then? :p), but it's almost done so I'll finish it anyway! This is what it will look like:

It's not that ugly when viewed from a distance, is it? XD

a dragon!

But not quite a finish, since I missed the backstitching on the outer edges of the border, and I don't have the gold braid for the netting on the border. I still think he looks great! He looked good without the backstitching but it's amazing how much definition the BS adds to the piece.
