Butterflies in May: Black Work Butterfly Update
Submitted by Pam on Mon, 05/19/2014 - 21:28
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.
The pattern is available here in the June 2013 issue of Bustle and Sew Magazine. Past issues of Bustle and Sew Magazine are available right here - OR - you can sign up for a trial subscription right here!

Helen, the creative mind behind Bustle and Sew designed this butterfly as part of a quilt block pillow or wall hanging. However, I am intending to make mine into a tree ornament - and because it is nearly 8" across, it will most likely be the new tree topper on my Butterfly Tree!
