Butterfly Stitch-a-Long, part 1

Perhaps it's a post-project hangover, perhaps it's summer, perhaps it's the World Cup ... but I can't believe it's been THREE WEEKS since the last update! And, well, my progress shows it.

Here's where I was three weeks ago, with a brand new project to kick off:

And here I am, three weeks later:

Though I will say that every time I look at it, it reminds me of a red panda...

Now, I am sure my fellow stitchers have accomplished MUCH MORE this time, and you should click on over to their blogs to see for yourself!

Avis, Claire, Gun, Carole, LucyAnn, Kate, Jess, Sue, Constanze, Debbierose, Christina, Kathy, Margaret, Cindy, Helen, Steph, LindaMary Margaret, Heidi, Jackie, Hayley, Tony, Megan and Timothy.

Our next check-in is in three more weeks... and I promise to get some stitching done this time!!!


  1. Dimensions kits are always so beautifully detailed, and this one is no excepetion.
    A lovely start.

    1. Thanks, Claire! It's been an adjustment going back to reading a chart -- I don't know how you cross-stitchers do it!

  2. A lovely project, and you’ve made a good start. This will be lovely to see every three weeks!

  3. yes, it does and the red panda is so cute and so are your embroidery!

  4. Love your progress and especially that panda <3

  5. Nope, you got 100% more than me done this time, because I made zero progress! I do see exactly what you mean about the red panda, although I'd have had trouble identifying what it was. It's going to be very pretty :-)

  6. I see what you mean about the red panda, it's going to be a beautiful butterfly though :-)

  7. That's a beautiful project and an excellent start!

  8. Your right it does look like a red panda lol. But soon it will be a beautiful butterfly.
