I kept to my goal this weekend and despite going out dancing last night I managed to finish 1/4 of Celestial Dragon. Well its not treally 100% finished, there's a scale pattern to be done on the dragon in gold blending fillament, a netting to stitch in the backgrounda and beads to go on. I'll be leaving all of that until the end. (BTW I did fix the loop by the dragon's mouth/tongue!)
The consensus for the wedding sampler is Dried Thyme which was my instincts as well! Tomorrow I'll make a working copy of the chart and get started.
