A Dragonfly








Way back in January, I started Block 5 - Marsh,  of my Solstice Dream Project, stitching a dear little frog , which was created from bullion knots, leaping off a lily pad.  Then I stopped.  Why?  Because I was too scared to stitch the dragon fly wings on, they are made of organza ribbon and I thought they'd fray and tear and cause all sorts of grief.  Over the past few days I have finally finished the block, if anything the wings were the least of my worries, all those french knots on the dragonfly head were cut off and restarted at least three times until I was happy with the end result.

Now it's onto another block, this time I'm redoing one of my beautiful blocks that I made too small.
