Corncockle and Dragonfly... continuing saga

Well I have just about completed the corncockles... A few finishing touches the center of the open flower, one of the ribs on the bud... (a bullion stitch ... 1 strand of silk on a #12 sharp needle with 24 wraps), and some bends with the tweezers to turn and twist the sepals into more pleasing places??
The top two dragonfly wings are almost done but I am afraid I will not be able to stop with this set of 4 wings. I can't possibly put scissors to these two sandwiched pieces of Divine metallic organza and waste the rest. I am on a mission to find some wings for another deserving butterfly or dragonfly or whatever to make at least one ... or more... sets of wings. I will be doing a lot of cutting when the time comes!!! soon I hope



  1. Shirlee this is turning out so beautiful. What amazing talent!

  2. I just love your embroidery of Corncockle! Beautiful:)

  3. WOW! Lovely. beautiful. I need a Roget's to really do justice to my awe at your work! LOL.

    I wondered how you did the wings. Thanks for the "peek" at them ...Looking forward to seeing many wings in the future :-)
