Let the People Choose - Dragonflies

Let the People Choose is hosted by Jo at Serendipitous Stitching. Every month is a different theme chosen by bloggers and on the first Saturday of the month we all post about our craftwork relating to the chosen idea.

This is my first year taking part in Let the People Choose, some month's I've had quite a bit to share but others hardly any.   January was Lizzie Kate, February was Penguins,  March was Coffee,  April was all about Modern Samplers and last month was Fire.

I only had one penguin item and last month I had nothing to show for fire but I did enjoy reading everybody else's blog. I'm a little late posting this month as this weekend has not been good for me, my arm has been very painful however I do have a dragonfly.

This beautiful beaded dragonfly broach has been in my possession for many years; I love it and I've worn it many times including on one of me bandanas.

I do however have a huge apology to one of my stitching friends. I know this was gifted to me a long time ago but I cannot remember from who.  I absolutely adore it and send grateful thanks to whoever is my dragonfly stitcher.

I am managing to stitch with my left hand but it's very very slow. Thankfully I have some stitching already done to cover most of this month blogs but I have a feeling my July posts will be very very empty!


  1. I hope your in less pain very soon. I broke my hand right before we were going to start blogging, I was able to stitch but boy it was slow going. Using your less dominate hand is a challenge. Your dragonfly pin is gorgeous!

  2. Sorry to hear you are still in pain, hope it starts to ease soon.
    Well done with managing left handed stitching, not sure i'd be able to do that :-)

  3. This is a beautiful brooch. Sorry about your hand. You are so brave to try stitching with left hand, i can hardly stitch with right :)

  4. Such a lovely broach, dragonfly is a perfect chart for beading. Amitiés. Grosses bises. xxx

  5. Thanks for taking part in The People's Choice this month. I love that brooch. Hopefully the friend reads your blog and will remind you!
    Do you have a good sturdy floorstand you can use? My old art teacher had a paralysed arm and she did all her sewing using a stand to hold the fabric still. She used to use the arm as a paper weight in painting lessons, which was a little bit unnerving! She would just lift it up using her good arm and rest it on the paper.

  6. It's a pretty brooch, Clare. Sorry to read that your arm is still being painful.

  7. Clare: Your Brooch is lovely, I can see why you wear it.
    I do hope your back to using both hands soon.
    So sorry you are having pain.
    When my arm was in a cast for 10 months I used a floor frame to stitch, Mike helped me get the fabric on the frame.


  8. That is gorgeous! I am so sorry to read that you still suffer in pain Clare. :( I am praying for you my friend. God bless you.

  9. What a beautiful brooch! I hope you get to identify the sender. So sorry you are in so much pain. Hope you can let it get plenty of rest so it won't heart as much.

  10. The brooch is gorgeous. Hope your arm improves soon

  11. A beautiful gift, talented person who made that pretty
    Love and (hugs) x

  12. That is a lovely brooch, beautiful blue.
    I hope your arm feels better soon. Remember that every stitch counts, so keep on stitching as best as you can.
