This pattern is dedicated to the woman’s son that talked to me after a show last year. She told me a beautiful story about her son loving Dragonflies and that he had been killed. Afterward she seemed to see Dragonflies everywhere. She won-dered if I would do something with a Dragonfly. I’m sad to say I didn’t write down her name and hope she sees this message. The Dragonfly is not stitched but made with wire and beads that is called wire weaving. The pattern includes instructions how to make the Dragonfly and it is so much fun and easier than it looks.
