A blog trying to focus on all the nice things in life, those moments when everything turns out right. Finding the perfect fabric for that chart you love, the ideal sampler quote, just the right picture in all the 1000s of magazines you own. Meeting people who share your interests and obsessions and totally understand why you NEED that chart when you already have enough to last until you're 104
Here are the Five Gold Rings with a sleepy little Dragonlet on his pile of treasure.
This is the fifth in the series available as a FB exclusive from the Dragon Dream page
I stitched the rings in two different metallics, one darker, thicker from Madeira and one paler and thinner from DMC. The DMC was definitely nicer to stitch with on 28 count.
Here is my evening piece:
This is Karen's Mermaid for the Large Mirabilia Round Robin. I'm really enjoying stitching this design, anyone want to take a guess which mermaid it is?
Finally, there's been alot of talk on Facebook about Pinterest and copyright, that old hot potato! I do enjoy looking at Pinterest boards but have been a little bemused by people pinning actual cross stitch charts instead of just a picture. No-one does that on blogs, everyone links to the original blog or site, so why are people doing it on Pinterest? The whole point of a designer or blogger giving a free chart is to encourage traffic to their website, by pinning the chart anyone can download it and not even acknowledge the original designer. That's just not cricket!! And is, in fact, illegal, even if the design was a freebie. So come on Pinners, give credit where it's due and only pin pictures of the finished designs and always add a link. If you're repinning and the information isn't there, then ask the original pinner. If they can't give it then don't play with them, they're not nice people LOL.
