CROSS STITCH PATTERN, DESIGNED BY Lesley Teare Designs
Here's Lesley Teare's fearsome Chinese Dragon, an awesome cross stitch design featuring the winding beast with menacing head, scaly body, spiky paws and sweeping tail on a background of fluffy clouds, Asian style.
Dragons in China are benevolent beasts, representing cosmic energy. They can summon rain and wind, grow higher than the clouds, dive deep underseas or hide in the tiniest hole.
If you're into oriental art, this is an amazing piece to stitch. It will make a stunning decoration in your home.
The piece is designed to be stitched on cream or pale yellow fabric, to mark the constrast with the clouds. There are some golden metallic highlights.
The chart comes with an extensive Cross stitch Guide detailing all stitches including fractional stitches.
