A 'royal' dragonfly
Why should flower petals be the only recipients of the 'royal' treatment? I decided to create this dragonfly with wings made from huskings with twisted loops, using the technique that quillers around the world are now calling 'royal' after Asma's Royal Flower.
I used copper-edged strips for the borders of the wings, making a sparkly contrast to the rather dark and mysterious pond water that appears in the background photo. I thought the lily floating in this pond looked great against the darkness of the water, and hopefully my dragonfly does too!
