January 26 Work in Progress Wednesday Cross stitching

Almost finished with the butterflies around the border, then on to stitching the middle - I have used overdyed floss for the butterflies, choosing to use more of the pinkish dyed strands on the bottom right - I like the soft effect  (using simply shaker floss in vintage lace)

thank you for looking :)

Work In Progress Wednesday, Butterfly Cross Stitch

Picking up from where I left off two+ years ago!  and continuing to finish this cross stitch design, finishing two butterflies for this WIPW...

I designed it based on an antique filet pattern, and am stitching it in overdyed floss on white Jobelan fabric - the center will have some verses... :)
