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!
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 FinishA 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:

Please see Freddy's Instagram Page for more photos of the butterfly and her other stitching projects.
Electric Blue… Halloween FreebieI 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! xxx
