It´s time to check-in for the `Let the People Choose´ SAL hosted by Jo of Serendipitous Stitching and while my stitching mojo is at its lowest, I can at least join everyone with embroideries done in the past.
I thought I had stitched lots of butterflies, which is our theme for this month but alas, I´m wrong I seem to have embroidered very few over the years and all are very tiny .
The Rhodes Butterfly biscornu by The Sweetheart Tree is the first and only biscornu I have ever made, and shows four Rhodes stitch butterflies. Both sides of this biscornu are the same.
but the little matching scissor fob has a different design each side.
There are two butterflies in this Blackwork Flowers and Birds design by Lesley Teare, I have more in this series to embroider later this year.
And another pretty pattern by Lesley called Blackwork Anemone, a free pattern which you can find here.
An unknown design stitched years ago and abandoned because I felt I should have used a brighter floss colour or a different background fabric.
Lastly a tiny butterfly can be seen in the month of March of The Snowflower Diaries Joyful World Calender SAL. – I wonder if I will ever finish the series.
I photographed this beauty in the garden. I think it is a Swallowtail butterfly.
