Drawn Thread

I finished the butterfly completely by sewing on the third set of legs.  This is one of the favorite things I have ever stitched.

So, what now?
Temptation got the best of me.  I started something new.  I have been checking Drawn Thread's website daily as I was expecting some new designs to be released.  Yes! They were released last week.  I showed great restraint and waited an entire day before ordering a couple.  I am embarrassed by how many Drawn Thread designs I have that are not finished (or started!).  I really do want to finish the Spring Fling project.  The designs arrived on Friday.  Quick!  They are pretty quick to stitch too.  I love getting the whole shebang:  fabric, threads and embellishments so I can start them whenever I get the bug.  Well, I got the bug.  Isn't this the cutest design?

I don't even like Halloween designs.  But I like that this makes a pocket and the lining is stylish and the ribbon is perfect.  I like this one.  I started it yesterday.
So far:

I think I can finish it today.
I put a few stitches in on the butterfly's friend, the beetle.  I'll show you my progress tomorrow.
