  3. Awesome!!!I have never seen such beautiful work :)

  4. Hello Miss Sunshine! I must comment on the curtains -- saw the pix over at MJFarms -- just amazing embroidery. Be sure to post a picture of the finished product -- I can't wait to see that many butterflies dancing on the curtains! Your daughter will love it.

    And enter my name in the suprise give-away. One day I will win!

  5. Happy 400th! I'm in for the contest, please!

    Those butterflies are beautiful-fabulous idea to do them yourself. SO much better that way!

    Love the color combinations...you are a pro at those. :-)

  6. These curtains are going to be just beautiful. I'm sure your daughter will treasure them.

    I'd love to join your drawing, it's so sweet of you to share your work.

  7. I love the butterflies! They are so pretty. I'm sure P is going to love her room when it is all done, especially since it is all her own. :) One of these days I'm going to learn how to embroider...

  8. I'm enjoying these butterflies a lot. I've sometimes thought about doing a large embroidery project like this, but never have.

    Congrats on the 400th post, too!

  9. You are truly a talented embroiderer.

  10. Sunshine,
    Those butterflies are fantastic! Would love to see the finished project. I bet it will look great. You are blessed with creativity that's for sure.
    A surprise drawing is always fun. I'd like you to put my name in too!

  11. Sunshine - your butterflies look great! What kind of embroidery floss are you using? It looks nicer than what I use.

    Add me to the drawing too please!

  12. On this project I am using DMC pearl cotton size 5

  13. so very nice. I too don't know how you do it all. these butterflies are just too cute.do you have patterns for the butterflies or did you freehand draw them then start stitching away?

  14. Congratulations on your 400th post. The butterflies are beautiful. Ican't wait to see the finished curtains.

  15. I was wondering, what's your favourite method for transferring embroidery designs to your fabric for stitching?

    I use an iron on pencil but sometimes you get a line that isn't covered completely and the kind of pencil I use doesn't wash off so I'm stuck with it.

  16. I tend to use a red fine tip permanent marker when doing red work. A normal pencil most other times. I am not fond of the wash out markers they are not always wash out so sometimes you think it is ok to have a line showing because it will wash out then it doesn't and then your stuck with an ugly line. With pencil I know I have to cover the line. With red ink (permanant ink) I know if a little shows from my red work no one will know but me.

  17. Hello Sunshine :o)

    What beautiful butterflies...You do such awesome stitching! I love looking at all of your projects :o)

    Peace, Stephanie


  18. So pretty, I wish I had the patience! Please count me in for the draw.

    2. satin stitch
    3. colonial knot differnt than a french knot bigger

  21. Hi, sunshine. I love your butterflies. You have such a perfect chain stitch. I am stil lworking on mine, trying t ofind the comfort level and it looking consistent.
