Self Pay It Forward - Part Two

Now that I know it's arrived at its new home safe and sound I can tell you about the little picture that I recently finished, the second gift for one of the people that were kind enough to comment on my 'Self' post back in January.  You can read all about the little dragon that is safe guarding the names of the people that commented and sent me their details back here.

This time round the dragon gave me Celia to make something for.  You can visit Celia's blog here.  Having found Celia on facebook a few weeks back I found out that she has a birthday in August just like me.  That triggered the idea for the gift that I made her.
I found a little cross stitch pattern in the book I mentioned back here for a native american birth totem.
I really like how this turned out.  The colours are lovely and it didn't take too long to stitch up ... probably because I was enjoying it so much.  It's nice to have another finished project to add to the list too, there don't seem to have been many so far this year, but life is all about balance and I'm having fun doing lots of different things at the moment so not enough hours in the day to spend on craft as I would like.

Now it's time for me to go off and find out who the dragon is going to choose next.......
