Becky's block...


More dragonflies... I have finally completed my part of Becky's block... I have stitched and unpulled more times than I care to admit to - no matter what I did nothing seemed to work. I had stitched the multicolored wave of blanket stitch first then I added the french knots to add some interest and texture. I had found the gold charm at a lovely embroidery shop and the matching beads were in my collection but for some reason I couldn't move passed that point and I tried quite a few things which just 'didn't fit' and then on Saturday I wandered into a scrapbooking store and there they were... As I looked at these little dragonfly paperclips Becky's block came to mind... Bingo!!!! Here was my answer... Becky I hope you like this addition to your block... Tomorrow it will be winging its way to Hope on the next leg of its Australian tour...

I love my block and how did you know I adore dragonflies??? I get these huge blue and red ones around my pond in late august. I watch them for hours!
 
Sharon, this is a lovely seam treatment. It was great wothout the dragon flys, but they are just WOW. Hope you got a few extra of those, one of my blocks has a dragon fly.....
