When Ellen from Wisconsin sent me her stone I knew immediately that I would need to incorporate some element relating to dragonflies in it. I've gotten to know her a little over the past few years and I know dragonflies are a passion of hers.
I didn't want to stitch a literal dragonfly on her stone, but instead wanted to bring a touch of dragonfly to the design.
I chose a blue that reminded me of the dragonflies I see in my yard, and used stitches to suggest the structure in a dragonfly wing. What I wish you could see in the photo, but can't really, is that the thread I used is iridescent and shimmers when you hold it in the right light, much like a dragonfly wing itself.
It joins the growing gathering of stones. Thank you, Ellen, for sending it to me.
I've gotten a few more stones in the mail, thank you so much to everyone who has sent one. I still need more so if anyone else would like to send a stone to me, I'd love to have them. You can get all the information on this post HERE.
Have a great day, everyone!
