Derwentwater Designs - Dragonfly Birthday

When I visited Betty Stitchkit a few weeks ago, I was drawn to a birthday card cross-stitch kit (Dragonfly Birthday) by Derwentwater Designs. The stitched area struck me as being incredibly simple, yet highly effective.

As I studied the display picture, I found myself thinking that it might be nice to embellish the eyes and bodies of the dragonflies with seed beads. I opted for Mill Hill Antique Glass Beads, shade number 03047, which proved to be an excellent choice.

It’s not that easy to see on the picture below, but in my opinion, the seed beads really do add the wow factor.
