Lace Dragonfly's Motifs, With a Little Art Nouveau style

A year or two ago I wanted to make dragonfly's and mix it up with cluny wings. The pictures were taken at the time to show off some shuttles my husband made for me too.
I never could decide which pattern I liked the best of the dragonflies.
(Walnut Fish)

So I could write out a pattern.
(Woolly mammoth bone)


I enjoyed making the different colors too! This one I sent to a friend (tally) and she said the motif was very Art Nouveau , I agree and have owned a book on this, but never put it together.  Thanks Tally!
Same bone here just darker color, and different shape.
