Dragonfly wings


Finally my SM's are back and in good shape so I could do a little sewing. Of course not after having changed my plans again :-)
I discovered that dragonfly wings are made of star scraps.....Recently I finished a top with stars in cream, white and offwhite. And just for fun I had pieced the tiny remnants together with the intention to make something abstract out of it. But I was wrong .... Seems to be just perfect for wings...
