Dragonflies with beads

This is a design I stitched for a friend’s birthday last year. I think it was on 11-count aida. I added some seed beads to the wings and eyes to give them a hint of shine. The pattern came from a desk calendar.

Photo quality isn’t great, I know, but you can see the beads. Some of the stitches are going the wrong way – I was stitching it in a hurry and wasn’t paying enough attention. Because the design is symmetrical, it would get turned and I wouldn’t realize I was stitching the wrong way. Every project is a learning opportunity. 🙂
