I made this for Mal's 25th birthday, which is tomorrow. Stitched mostly on my lunch breaks, but finished at home tonight. The dragon's belly and spines are Madeira silk, the backstitch is DMC satin thread. The main body green is generic Chinese brand.

Stitched for a forum exchange and made into a scissor keep because it was about all I could think of! I had to use a size 26 needleon this because it was a particularly tight weave on the fabric, I don't know if it's rustico aida - it was just what I had in my stash.
Heather-at-work is pregnant, due in July 2009, and doesn't know if she's having a boy or a girl. Her older daughter, Kacie, already has a stitched Piglet on her wall. If she has a son, she'd like a picture of Pooh for him.
Georgina-at-work is Irish, she was having a really hard time with work being ridiculously busy, her father had not long died unexpectedly, and it was St Patrick's day. This seemed appropriate to me and was very well-received.
