Sunday Stitching

In the gray drizzle of a Sunday, while brownies were baking and then cooling, I did the rest of the stitching in the hoop.

I thought about stitching the lines representing the bodies or doing the outlines of certain butterflies, but I want to get all the butterflies done, and then decide if I want to do the outlines. Once the yellow butterfly at the top was finished, it was time to decide where to move the hoop. I moved it to complete the upper left of the design. Then, I will do the lower left, lower right and end with the upper right. I'm liking the variety in size and color. The only thing I don't like, and probably one reason Carole gave the project to me to finish, is the twistiness of the thread. It tangles so easily. Fortunately, this will be mounted so you can't see the mess that is the back. It's coming along nicely.

Beverage:  English Breakfast tea
