The People's Choice SAL: Fire

It's (high) time for Jo's 'The People Chose' SAL, this month's topic is "Fire", and my update on that will be short and sweet (orh ot?) - one design I stitched, one I really want to stitch some day!

My one really firery project I did is, of course, Fire and Ember - a red dragon sitting on a pile of lava with a firery glow all around, it doesn't get much better than that!

And the one design I really really want to stitch because it looks absolutely awesome (but I'm also a bit intimidated by it because it's crazy with specialty stitches and stuff) it the Phoenix Mandala by Northern Expression Needleworks. Just look at it, isn't is awesome? (picture stolen from their Etsy store):

Just look at it, isn't that pretty? I really need to do more projects with specialty stitches, I so enjoy doing them and I don't get nearly enough practice.

THanks for taking part in The People's Choice this month. Of course Fire & Ember is the perfect design for this theme. The NEN design is lovely too, her instructions are very good. You should go for it!
Or persuade Magical to do a speciality stitch series to learn some of the stitches in a small design.

OOoooooo, I really like the Phoenix mandala. I haven't done much but I really enjoy canvas work. Fire and Ember is just beautiful, really does look like it's glowing

Oh wow! Fire and Ember looks fantastic! If ever you get fed up with it I'm sure I can offer it a good home ;)

Your Fire and Ember is just stunning, I love it!
That Phoenix Mandala does look amazing, I hope you decide to stitch it one day.
