Birds, Butterflies... Spiders & Other Creepy Things...

Some More Mystery...

Here is my progress on the Mystery Chart!  There are still so many confetti stitches to fill in!

Also I've made a decent start on the first page of the Phelan Chart.  Her hair is coming across very orange but hopefully should tone down a bit once the surrounding colours are stitched.

This one is being tented on 18 count cream davosa fabric with a variable amount of strands (3-5 depending on colour):

Freddy Werner's Butterfly Chart Finish

A big thanks to Freddy Werner for sharing her stitching progress on the butterfly chart (available on the downloads page). It has been a joy to watch it take shape! I love her use of variegated thread as I think it gives the piece a great sense of movement.  Freddy has plans to make the butterfly into a cushion, it may be showcased in an exhibition and will get a spot on her stitchy couch! :D
Congratulations on your beautiful finish Freddy:

Electric Blue… Halloween Freebie

I wanted to give away a new freebie for Halloween.  I was thinking of charting a spider or pumpkin or something creepy… A new butterfly seemed much more fun to work on though, so I charted another of those instead!   Thanks to Craftmanspace for the Butterfly image (used with permission).

This one could be stitched as a companion to the original butterfly chart.  However,  it's about 50 stitches wider and 50 stitches longer because it's more detailed.  If stitched on a higher count fabric it will balance with the original butterfly in terms of size.  Again, I would love to see and share pictures if anyone decides to stitch it!

Happy Stitching!
