Flying away

These are the wings for my dragonfly. I have no excuse now but to add her to the corncockles.
These are good wings for a beetle. I saw a beetle in flight and its wings come out from under the hard outer wing cases (elytra). I have some beetle elytra somewhere and I may try an experiment......
These are for some fantasy bug yet to be born!!!



Now if life will get back to normal whatever that is I can get back to stitching.

I adore your wings and bugs above oh sigh I so wish I had Maureen Gleeson in my neighbouhood and to have had classes with Candice oh be still my envious heart. I love your embroidery Unreal
