Dragonfly pattern now ready

Here's the pattern and here are two more worked exactly as the pattern states - for once!!!

I'm a terror for changing my patterns as I go but this time I think I've got them just right!!!  

Anyway, if you do decide to work any up yourself you can change the amount of beads you put on both the long beaded picots and also where you do the joining of those picots!!!  That's what took the time - trying out different bead counts!!!

The two below are earrings - or will be when I get round to putting them on ear wires!!!  They're worked in a number 80 thread.

I just happen to have a few beads lying around, and I do love dragonflies. You just might get me to use those beads with this pattern, Jane! If I manage, I'll be sure to send you a pic!

I'm working on some garden themed Crazy quilt blocks, and your pattern will be perfect for adding dragonflies and some bling. Thank you for sharing! Hugs

They look great and will enjoy making them. I do know what you mean about altering patterns as you go along.
Not only do I do it with my own, but with other peoples!
