There be dragons...

Actually, their much smaller cousins, the dragonfly.  

I've really been enjoying this one.  I don't know if it's because it's a new start, a Chatelaine, beads or a combination of all three.  

Friday night, I finished the first rose bud.  There are eighteen colors, including the backstitch color, in that baby.  But the result is beautiful!

Saturday, I finished another couple rose buds and added the backstitching on the first two dragonflies.

And last night, I finished the last rose, added the remaining dragonflies and started adding beads to them.  There is a definite PITA factor to beading this way, but I love the little blingy dudes!

It looks lovely! Is it better to bead as you go?

Wow! Your Chatelaine looks gorgeous :o) Beading as you go definitely gives you a real feel for the finish. Can't wait to see more ;o)
