Machine Embroidery: Adding eyes to a painted dragon …

Generally, phrases or verses aren’t one of my favourite methods of initial inspiration. But, if a particular phrase seems to ‘stick in my head’, it’s then usually written down or noted for future use, interpretation or reference - usually in a note book I started several years ago.

Such was the case of a Chinese proverb I came across "Adding eyes to a painted dragon"… the phrase being given as a name to my piece of machine embroidery.
