completed stone - eml in Wisconsin


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!

You have convinced me! I am sending you a stone!

I found you through Nini Makes blog roll just in this last week and thinking you most likely had more stones than you needed, I didn't even entertain the thought of participating. But since you are asking for more.........

Each and every stone so far - brilliant! Gorgeous! And your stitching skills are amazing and inspiring.
