needlecase with dragonfly

I made this silk needlecase for the sisters when they gave me some beetle wings from Thailand.
The colors are gorgeous, and the brown/green silk seemed just right.
Dragonflies are special in the Islands. Called Pinao in Hawaiian.

It is stunning - dragonflies are one of my favourites.

The colour of the material and your embroidery, makes it look truly vintage

Gorgeous Lilla. How unique to use actual beetle wings for your dragonfly.

Wow, I think I've seen pretty, and then you create something even prettier than the last, how is that possible! I wish I knew how to do needlework... it's stunning.

Lilla, the dragonfly is gorgeous. I"m curious to know why they are special to you in the islands as they are very special to my family as well. Debbie (Maine) USA
