A little bit of progress on Beaded Dragonfly

I'm now back to stitching and my arm is good as new :)

I can't tell you how relieved I am.  After some time with Google and WebMD, I was scared silly I had tendonitis.  For now, though, just in case, I'm stitching in shorter bursts and I'm making sure I have more support as I stitch and work on my laptop.  

I picked up Beaded Dragonfly Tile and I just couldn't resist doing some more beading.  I love the blues and turquoises that Martina of Chatelaine Designs chose, and it adds so much bling to the pattern.  I have a first beaded dragonfly to show off.  Martina suggested that they be backstitched and then beaded, which worked pretty well.  Only three more to go.

  

Happy stitching everyone!

    I know lots of people, including myself, that have been battling tendinitis. It sucks! I'm glad you're feeling better.

  7. Glad your arm is feeling better. Dragonfly looks great. I am trying very hard to not buy that series but I think Butterfly is going to pull me in (and I won't be able to buy just one of them as it's a series).
