Fast forward a few months to Martina's release of Butterfly Lace. One look at this design and I thought, "Mommy is going to like this more." But, just to be safe, I sent her both layovers on Ray of Light, and her response, bless her heart, was "That's much more colorful, huh? But you already bought stuff for the birds." Long story short, I told her not to worry as I love Hummie better anyways (LOL!) and I'll stitch it for myself on a later date.

The kit was ordered the moment Martina released the material list on November 1st... and it arrived from EuropeanXS today. Just silks and beads, but man oh man, the bling!! I had heart palpitations just laying them out for a floss toss picture! ;) All in all, there are about 87 DMC colors, and with the over 1 butterflies, this thing is going to be spectacular!!! :D I can't wait for my mom to see it, but first I'd have to finish it. Hahaha!

I'm thinking a January 1st start? I can hear the hootin' and hollerin' starting, hehehe. Before that happens, I'd like to finish another Mirabilia pixie before the year ends. It's a gift and I really need to get that out of the way. It's also important for me to keep up with Chinese Garden (the outer border is kicking my butt). Spring Knotgarden is going to have to go on the back burner for awhile though, cos Butterfly needs to be done inside of 6 months or so...
