Updating

May's flower of the month (Lilly of the Valley ) with 2 of the worlds largest cluny :) It is so long that looks a lot like two chain stitches, see they are the first two leaves,  I stitched the two clunies together a bit. I like this flower, but think it still need work!
I love the wings but the center was too big, and I removed the original and this second one.


This was the first set of wings made from this book and so I wanted to fix it up and add more color, so it worked out well to encircle it.

Hiding the ends with a whip stitch



I put this little bug center in. I was trying to create something which I will show you in a later blog post, It will be using a one color butterfly.

  10. The lily of the valley pattern should be written down as it is beautiful and modfiied butterfly is much better.
