My March piece was an exercise in discipline. I finished the fairly large peyote piece, a pattern I've done before both in peyote and as a large embroidered piece (on my vest). This one, I had started long ago and stopped working on because I just wasn't happy with the way the dragon wasn't 'popping'. The background color was too neutral, and too close to some of the colors I'd chosen for the body. Ah well, I love dragons, and March, to me, is a very dragonlike month, with high winds and strange changes in weather. So I finished it, and here it is: March Dragons! Now for April! Not bad, I'll get started before the week is over and I think I have a fairly good idea of what I'm going to be doing.
