Part 1: Butterfly Curtain

1st finished butterfly for curtain
My 5 year-old, since she just got her first room to herself, wants it decorated in butterflies. We just purchased a new home; things are a little tight, so I figured I had these curtains that used to hang in my sewing room at my old home. I decided it was easy enough to embroider on them to add a few butterflies to her room. So I put out the call to a few of the embroidery groups I belong to. Diana at the group CRAFT came through for me and sent me a ton of butterfly patterns from the internet. I embroidered the first one today. Each curtain will have 17 or more butterflies. This is the first one finished; it took me three hours to do this one. So, as I embroider these, I will update you all on the progress. In case any one wants to know, I am using size 5 pearl cotton to embroider with. I am also being real careful with the back side of my work because, when this is in the window, any thread bars will show because of the light from outside.

The funny thing about doing this is I am now dreaming of butterflies. I also decided to enter this in the Whip-ups whiplash competition in the project category.
