About the design:

I like blue too. Actually, I like pretty much all colors, the deeper and richer the better, but red and blue are very symbolic ones. Red is volatile, fiery, energetic, all those really active verbs. But blue is restful, cool, and calm. Again, this ‘gemstone’ dragon has an abstract patterning of shaded color, and, to go along with its restful nature, I chose to stitch it on Icon, a lovely calm colored cloth. Can’t you just picture this guy fading away into the deep blue of twilight, those startling red accents being the last you’d see of him?

Lapis Lazuli is a rock composed of many different minerals. It is most often a deep, dark blue with veins of gray-gold pyrite or other colored minerals. A very restful type of stone.
