The Dragonfly takes flight

I love dimensional embroidery and I add it often. The dragonfly is done. The background is in process. I may add additional beading etc to the background, but I will wait until the surrounding areas are complete. I tend to balance the piece with color,heavy embroidered area, and dimensional embroidery. It helps the eye transition around the entire block.
Until next time...


  1. What a beautiful dragonfly, I love your work! Cheryl
