I do love my Dragon flies and all the good that they do eating up those mosquitoes.... or mossies' as my Aussie cousins call them.
I love the colors that they come in and the sizes that they can be from the tiny bright blue to the large dark green and gold.
One summer I had one come and land on the magazine that I was reading, it flew away and came right back to see if I had turned the page. It hung out with me for about 20 minutes.
I have many pins and decorations, and coffee/ tea cups with dragonflies as well as a few quilted items and a little extra fabric.
Put them together and this is what I came up with .......
I picked up some Jumbo Rickrack for my stamps edge and a little ribbon. I think it worked out well, don't you?
As you can see from the stamp I live in Canada and I chose to have what we call Permanent Postage , with the little P on the Maple Leaf.
A few years back I also made this quilt when we received a new cancellation mark for our town..
I hope you enjoyed my little post and will stop in and see what the others have created leaving their stamp behind.
Thanks to Thearica and Mdm Samm for keeping us in a creative loop and in touch with sew many other who share some of the same addictions ...... fabrics and sewing....just plain old playing with our toys, and of course to do our show and tell.
Here is a pic of the pattern that I used for my lilies, ChiChi may have it in other shops as well.
