Seriously. A ridiculous amount of beads, really. I've been dying to get a start on this cute little design and here it is after a few stitching sessions.

I don't want to think about how many colors were in that flower bud. And now I have to do three more of them... ahahaha. *sob* Just kidding, it looks awesome and it's not THAT bad, I just got tired of threading up for four or five stitches!
Yes, the entire middle section IS beads. Check it out from an angle to get the full effect!
I looooove dragonflies! One of the story worlds my characters inhabit has a "race" (subspecies is more like it) of people with dragonfly wings who have traditional fairy powers like illusion and stuff like that. So dragonflies are special to me. ^_______^
