Cross Stitched Butterfly

Not much going on recently other than spending alot of time trying not to kill another plant and doing houschores *boring*, but finally it's hubby's pay day and as a good wife, i'll be spending his money to order some craft supplies soon *cheeky grin* but no worries, I know my limit as charity shopping is long overdue and i'll be gallivanting from one charity shop to another pretty soon looking for treasures for me and for my swap partner :)

Another free kit that i finally got a chance to make in one evening is this Butterfly cross stitch in a cute little frame from Cross Stitching magazine.

I still have 2 or 3 more free kits that i got from the magazines awhile back, I keep delaying doing them but it comes in handy now when i dont have anything else to make. I'm also waiting for my free gift from Wholeport as they're having a creativity expo and we can request one item from them free of charge, click the link for more info as there's still time if you want to join them for their Create-a-thon contest with the item you requested to be sent to you :)

That's it for now and i'll leave you with a photo of my wall of mini frames :)


  1. I'll pop along and check out the creatathon!! I love your butterfly though hun, it looks brilliant on your wall in your collection of other pretty frames! :-) I also must finish off my swap shopping and get my parcel posted to my swap partner!

  2. Oh you're so neat and clever! He can't complain about charity shopping I'm sure - it's for someone else after all ;-)

  3. Susan, your butterfly is soooo pretty! I love the colors and design. You did such a lovely job stitching all the threads into a beautiful, cool summery-looking picture. Are you going to hang it? and where?

    Looking forward to seeing what you purchase.


  4. Ooops...excuse me...I see you already hung it with your frames - I didn't get much sleep last night (noisy neighbors) so I didn't notice it at first...very lovely.
