Butterfly Stitch-a-Long, part 4

We've just returned from camping in the North Cascades -- staying at Newhalem, our favorite campground. So this stitch-a-long update is a quickie!

I wish I could tell you that I have finished my little butterfly project -- no, but I *am* close... and my mom's birthday is still a week away, so I think I will be able to get it done in time!

Apologies for the wrinkles, I've just pulled it off the frame so I could see all of it. There's a little backstitching on the rest of the butterfly (lower wings and body), along with a few more Chinese characters on the sides, and I have to make some cords and attach them. But I'm definitely in the home stretch!

As an offering for not writing more about this project, how about these lovely forest pics from the weekend?

The path to the walk-in campsites:

Almost there!

Our little private path:

Our weekend home!

My fellow stitchers have most likely done MUCH MORE on their projects -- check them out and get inspired by their beautiful work!
We'll be back in three weeks, on September 30, when I will have finished -- and presented! -- this butterfly project ... and chosen my next one from my great big box of UFOs... and hopefully gotten it set up and ready to go. 


  1. Your butterflies are gorgeous! Our family loves camping as well!

  2. hope you have butterfly finished in time for your Mum's birthday - she's going to love it!

  3. Beautiful bonus photos! I can't wait to see the butterfly with all the details done. :)
