Dragonfly Wall Hanging
The Dragonfly Wall Hanging is ready for binding:
A slightly larger one is HERE.
Although I may yet pin an occasional dragonfly broach on parts that are my own work - makes a useful place to keep them.
The middle sides were made as one large block that was then cut in half - the central block is from a round robin in 2003, and the top and bottom rows from a DYB (Doing Your Block) in 2004.
Here are the sides:
Larger one HERE. This one has one of my needle-lace dragonflies at the top (I blogged it ages ago - will find the link later), then a Susan Clarke original pin, the beaded dragonfly I posted yesterday, and a cheapie glass broach. Not sure the glass broach is really a dragonfly, but it looks close.
This is the right-hand side. Slightly larger one HERE.
The top broach is a beautiful copper one from my friend Chris, and there is a white dragonfly from my m-i-l's stash. The glass button was one from Nancy Eha, when she came to Australia. The butterfly near bottom right is a set of stumpwork wings from the incredible Maureen III, and I think the gold dragonfly with rider was a gift years ago.
I am still thinking about how to mount this. I think I am going to just bind it with a narrow binding, with internal wooden supports, and then lace it onto a lashed frame of natural wood.
But that decision is still being made - it might just get a temporary treatment.
I have counted the number of dragonflies on this wall hanging, and not counting those printed on fabric, I think there are 36. But maybe I need to count again.
