Butterfly Stitching

I've been working on my Butterfly stitchery from the Giggle Club the last few days. I love how it looks so far.
Sonya used pink, blue green and purple for her butterfly. I was lucky to have variegated hand dyed thread from Desert Sky Quilting in those colors. The outside line of the butterfly wing was green. The thread I had was a green and purple variegated. It worked great against the purple satin stitched dots.
I may work on the rest of the project tomorrow. I work the closing shift so I have the morning off. I plan to spend some time sewing unless there's too much snow and I have to shovel in the morning.

What are you up to these days?

Look at all the Paula's around here!
Very pretty butterfly. I love your satin-stitch polka-dots. My satin stitches always turn out looking horrible!
I finished a couple of quilt blocks today and almost finished a market bag and haven't prepared any more handwork yet, so here I sit this evening with no project. Weird. Don't think I like it ~

Your butterfly is looking fabulous. Those threads really lift things.

That looks wonderful!!
I'm working on a new block of the month. I went into our local quilt shop the other day and was looking at a quilt they had on the wall. One of the ladies who work there walked up and told me it was a block of the month they were working on. I signed right up!!
I love working on hand work at night while the family is home. :)

Butterflies always are so cheery as this one is. I'm still working away on my projects, the siggy blocks and stuff.

The butterfly is beautiful!

Great butterfly--and it's purple, too! Hand stitching is almost like meditating...very calming...as long I don't mess up. lol

I'm finishing up an 'imagination' quilt for our niece's new baby. The quilt is for having teddy bear tea parties, picnics, and for spreading under a tree and reading. Dragging around everywhere. I'm almost done with hand stitching the bindings.
