Bluebell Dreams

Butterfly Series
Over the past couple of months I've been working on designing a series of Butterfly Cross Stitch Charts.  The current plan is to release one butterfly a month (at the very least) for the next year.  I will be sharing the designs here alongside my normal stitching and crafting activities.  The charts will be available as pdf downloads from my store "The Girl that Stitches."
