Happy Butterfly Dance !!!!!

Firstly I just want to thank everyone for their kind words and warmth on my last post, it really meant a lot !!!

I've finally done it !!! I've finished the most frustrating project in my WIP pile. DMC linen butterflies is completed !!!! I have hated stitching this project, the pattern was a freebie from the DMC website but I don't think this version is there anymore. The pattern was so bad it was impossible to tell where the back stitch lines were supposed to go. The only reason I was able to do them was that the company also had the same pattern online but with cotton threads and that one was much clearer to read. The threads themselves were a nightmare and use to fray, break and fluff constantly (no wonder they were discontinued !!!). The only reasons I continued with the project were that the fabric was lovely (The Crafty Kitten) and that the design looks amazing stitched up. The threads have a cool matt finish to them. Here it is ...

















Now I'm off to restart HAED Autumn Owl Trio !!

Happy Stitching Everybody !!!
