A blog friend of mine (not quite the same as an imaginary friend) had a very hard year last year. She loves dragonflies. Many months ago I had the idea of making her a dragonfly ornament/window hanging. When I saw the pattern for this, intended as a chip carving (I’ll have to look up which magazine), several months ago it spoke to me as the perfect one for her. Because of the intricacies of the design it did not lend itself to a 4” size. At this size, just under 6 inches (dollar bill size), it looked like it would work. It’s not perfect, if you look carefully you can see evidence of a few of the starter holes, but I think it will brighten her day. It’s mahogany, 1/8” thick. The finish is spray polyurethane. The hole at the top is for hanging.
A special thank you goes to Todd for his photography tips which I made use of in photographing this.
