I'm a little later posting today. It'll give you all a chuckle to learn the reason. I was looking through the latest bag of projects I had pulled. I was able to cull two charts that I don't think I'll ever stitch. Then I rediscovered Butterflies from the Arts & Crafts Designs folio by Ginger & Spice. Picture This Plus has had this stitched and displayed as a shop model for probably as long as they've been open and I've always been drawn to it. I finally asked for help finding it because it never seemed to be in stock. When they handed me the folio, which was in stock, I saw why I'd never found it. Can you figure out why?
The butterflies are turned at such an angle that they're nearly invisible. I did a quick look online and couldn't find a better picture. It's a circle of butterflies and what I think are probably dragonflies. It's made up of lovely DMC lavenders, antique blues and blue violets colors. Since I am a purple fanatic, this one totally fits the bill. AND, I had purchased a piece of 28ct Desert Sky Cashel linen on clearance. It's just perfect. It's subtly colored with hints of blues, pinks and yellows. So, I gave up resisting temptation and I started it today! I didn't do much, just the head and body of one butterfly and part of one wing segment. But it's started! So, I have yet another WIP!! Just what this crazy stitcher needed. So, here's my start. It's not much but it's a start. The fabric will not show anywhere near as pretty as it really is. Maybe during the day when it's finished, pressed and framed.
So that's today's WIP. Newly created but a WIP nonetheless. Now I can start looking for tomorrow's!!
Hugs and Stitches,
