Is it hot enough for you?

This little dragon has found the perfect way to keep cool in the summer:

He's the seventh in the Twelve Dragonlets of Christmas series by Dragon Dreams released as an exclusive on their Facebook page.  He is the Large Boy's favourite so far.

This is a new start, it's going to be a Wedding Sampler.  One heart done, 11 to go.

It's a freebie I downloaded and labelled as "Marie Carton" which I think is a French blog but the bookmark must be on the old computer!

OK, I've done a little googling and here is the link for Coeurs en Boites.

I'm stitching on 28 count white evenweave using 1 thread of DMC 304.

I also finally reached the far side of my Scarlet Letter Sampler.  14 inches across altogether.  Phew!  I can either start filling in or move on to the outlining of the next band up.

Finally, the third postcard in the Summer Blog Hop has appeared.  Here are the three sent so far:

My card goes to Debbie at Debbie's Cross Stitch
Debbie's card goes to Christine at The Alchymyst's Study
Christine's card goes to Lynn at Kearnel's Korner

  1. Loving the hot weather and making the most of it as winter will come round quick enough!

    I love this dragon - think he's my favourite too.

    The sampler is going to be beautiful too. Happy stitching.

  2. It has been in the 100's (that's Fº) for a week. Yuck!!
    The sampler is a very pretty one.

  3. I have that chart you are using as wedding sampler, I think that is a great idea. Would love to see more.

  4. Hehehe, such a little cutie.I might have to dive into the water as well the next week as there is a sort of heat wave forecast for our region - not really what I like, lol.

  5. great start and that lil dragon is so funny!
    I've heard about the extreme temperatures in the UK. quite an emergency considering you're not prepared for it.
    my sis happens to be there for her very first time, and she said "of course, I had to find a heat wave here as well!"
    hold on and enjoy the hermitting!

  6. Very cute dragon & a nice start on the wedding sampler

  10. I am in the middle of Winter so need some of the northern hemisphere's warmth to warm me up LOL. Cute dragonlet and lovely new start.

  11. The dragon is so cute! And suitably attired for the hot weather you're having - I hope it gets better for you.
