Alzheimer's Initiative - Dragonfly

  Wow, this month is flying, I can't believe it's been a week since I've posted.  This is my favorite time of year, love to savor the moments and beautiful weather.  I've been busy visiting my daughter in Atlanta and getting behind on my "catch up" - projects I planned to finish, but getting to see my new little granddaughter is the best.  
     I did complete another small piece for the Alzheimer's Initiative called Dragonfly.  I used all my hand dyed fabrics and also one print - mostly leftovers from another project.
 I used Lana thread (blend of wool and acrylic) and did the machine buttonhole stitch found on the Bernina machine. I totally love this stitch and find myself using it more and more for machine applique.
 I also did some beading around the edge using 2 sizes of seed beads. Mary Stori calls this stitch "dots" and one she developed.  It's a lot of fun to do and adds a nice finish. I used a screen of a  Dragonfly to make the image in the corner.

I'll be heading off to NY tomorrow for my high school reunion - know it will be a lot of fun! Have a wonderful weekend enjoying the beautiful fall colors.


  1. Love it Judy!!!! What a generous contribution for a great cause....

  2. Alzheimer's Disease is a tragedy to friends and family of the afflicted. It a tragic situation no doubt. Alzheimer's Disease is one form of dementia in the elderly that can be specifically diagnosed.
