First Black Work butterfly wing completed!
And I am loving every minute spent working these intricate but simple stitches using one single tiny thin strand of embroidery floss!
Most likely, I will not complete my embroidered butterflies before the end of May as originally planned, but that's OK 'cause butterflies will be fluttering about on my Butterfly Tree until mid-July.

This month is not going quite as smoothly as planned - probably because I may have gotten a bit carried away with my butterfly project!!! Eyes bigger than my crafty time one could say!!! Or perhaps a skewed and unrealistic idea of the amount of time it takes to tap hundreds of tiny holes in tin or make hundreds of tiny stitches on fabric! So …. this is as far as I have gotten on three embroidered butterfly adventures!

May 2014 is butterfly month on Gingerbreadsnowflakes! And in honor of Cinco de Mayo it seems only appropriate that the butterfly series begin with "punched tin" butterflies. After all, my journey into the world of making "punched tin" objects began with a childhood introduction to punched tin mirrors, sconces and ornaments made in Mexico and brought back to Santa Fe homes by friends and neighbors. The love affair began when I was ten years old and has never ended!
