A Beautiful Dragonfly ...

Hello my dear friends,

A few years ago when my daughters and I were on one of our visits to Michigan, we of course made a stop at Hobby Lobby whilst there. There I found the most beautiful broach in the shape of a dragonfly. Glistening in many shades of green and blue, it was just stunning! Back home said broach then ended up hiding away one of the drawers in my craft room but it was time to let this piece show off all it's beauty once again.

A frill made from hand dyed seam binding in a rich shade of deep blue that harmonized with some cotton velvet were perfect in my eyes to make this pretty "insect" stand out. Together with a vintage tarnished drinking vessel, my newest pincushion was created and I am so happy with it. 

Take a look! ...

A lovely piece with the 'less is more' thing but with so much prettiness for sure. 
It has already found a new home and will be on it's way there in a few days and my next thing to do it is, to think of what I am going to create next.

Thank you for taking the time to visit me here at Todolwen, it is always so nice when you do.

I hope you are well and life is treating you kind.

Have a peaceful and creative day.

Stay safe and stay healthy.
