Finished butterfly

Here's the finished butterfly/dragonfly block for Making Memories. It will be joined with other blocks and made into a quilt that I believe will be auctioned off to benefit breast cancer research. As always, you can click on the pic to get a close up.

We were asked not to use beads on these blocks, which I fudged on just a little, using 3 large beads for the butterfly's eyes and tongue/nose/thingie. The little roses are done in cast-on stitch, which is a fun 3D stitch, and the leaves are done in stacked fly stitches. This was a lot of fun to work on.

Fabulous, Janet! Your stitching is exquisite and the details amazing. Efforts such as this bring hope to cancer patients; right now 3 of my friends are undergoing treatment. I, too, have been touched by this disease, twice. Bless you for participating in this project.
