Embroidery butterflys!



Yesterday when I was stitching away in the sunshine, I was deciding in my head what to do with my beetroot dyed vintage French linen....

Then it came to me, butterfly wings in raspberry colour hand dyed (in beetroot)  and embroidered in white shaker threads....

I will make it like a sampler with a little rhyme or saying on there and think it will look very pretty....


I have my sketch book at the ready for next weeks designing and I will be able to sit in the garden whilst I do it with this wonderful weather that has appeared again in England!!

I am going to have a little play with doing butterfly wings and will show you hopefully in a week or so.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and do not forget to read the blog tomorrow it has some great hand dye plants on there for different colours...

Happy Stitching!
