Liz, over at Dreaming Spirals: www.dreamingspirals.blogspot.com/ has been posting some design work on dragonflies, culminating in a super bead box. Liz, did you know they can fly at 40 miles per hour and one of their old names was 'devils darning needle' because country folk thought they would fly right in your ear?!
I was prompted to get out my own dragonfly effort.
This is handmade felt - silk tops for the wings and dyed merino for the rest, except for the blue which is a silk and linen mix. Details are outlined with free ME and running stitch is added for the 'landscape' details.
