I was so glad to see that others were not finished yet either. Dragonflies mean spring to me and lots of flowers. I designed the quilt around this machine embroidery of dragonflies. I was going to combine machine embroidery and machine designs from my sewing machine. (with all of the things my machine does I thought I should put it to use). I was disappointed with the seam embellishments. I prefer hand work. My biggest problem has been deciding what embellishments to use. I have books and ideas from the internet. That's the problem. Too many choices. I will finish it, probably in about two weeks.  I loved seeing what everyone else is accomplished. We have a very talented group.

Betty,

Love the dragonfly embroidery and your cross stitched flowers! The laces are beautiful and the seam treatment along the floral ribbon is perfect. This is looking just lovely.

Betty, I love the dragonflies also.  This is really pretty.  

I know what you mean about too many choices.  So often I just say,  "Oh, I feel like making a lazy daisy stitches today" , and combine that with beads and different placements, french knots, etc. and just come up with my own....I suppose that's the lazy way, right.  Hey, it gets me out of the land of indecision and into the land of stitching, lol.  

Anyway, really beautiful work!
