Sharing a friend's wisdom

Eastern  Dragon

Many, many years ago, I was reading a home & gardens-type magazine when I saw a tiny picture on the wall of a dragon.  Now, I love dragons.  I used to collect dragons.  Not the cute ones, but the real dragons (no bias there).  Anyway, I saw this picture and I gasped.  It was beautiful!  So I clipped out the picture and took it to my studio.  I look out a large piece of paper and drew my dragon from the picture of the dragon.  Then I needlepointed it into the picture you see above.  It is about 2 1/2 feet by 4 feet, I think, maybe a tad smaller.  Cost a mint to frame.

Anyway, I thought I would share this picture with you, but what I really want to share with you is today's blog from my friend, Claire.  In it, she talks about the 12 rules for How to be a Drama Queen.  I urge you to read it, it is so worthwhile -- and accurate, too!



  1. Byrd, I've never seen that dragon--actually, I've never seen any of your needlepoint in person (must have been something you did before polymer clay)--, and she (he?) is spectacular!

    I'm trying to catch up on my favorite blogs, and I see this! You posted a link to The Dozen Drama Rules. :)

    THANK YOU!!!¸.•´¸.•~♥♥♥~•.¸

    (A little pixie dust for you and your dragon.)

  2. Really? I never showed you any of my needlepoint? wow. i have so much of it, I thought sure you had seen some of it.

    Well, that's one of the problem in being a bookaholic: the walls are so full of bookshelves that there's no place to hang pictures.

    I really loved your "Rules for a Drama Queen" blog. I think it's brilliant!
