As you can see I am back to stitching! I finished the top butterfly wing, or the one on the right, tonight. The wings were first pencil traced and then the wire was couched down to hold it in place while I buttonhole stitched all around the outside. Then the inside outlines are stitched with a single strand outline stitch. Next, the satin stitch is worked over those up to the buttonhole stitch. Last, the little white seed stitches are place all around the outside.
Tomorrow, I start the bumble bee wings!
