More Butterflies...

Thank you so much, everyone, for all of your well wishes and prayers for my dad. He's doing good. My parents have always ate healthy, but now my mom is ramping that up and trying to eat only organic foods.

A quick picture before I dive into my day. The three bottom butterflies are done, as are the leaves and outside border. I just have to finish the specialty stitches in the bottom corners and backstitch the flower petals and butterflies and then it'll be time to scroll up to work on the top section. I have 16 days, and counting, to my deadline... wish me luck! :D

P/S. There were a few questions in the previous posts about the designer of this chart. Unfortunately, some of your email addresses are not attached to your blogger account and I was unable to reply. This is the Butterfly Lace Mandala by Chatelaine (Martina Rosenberg).

Glad to hear that your dad is doing better.

WOW those butterflies look unbelievable! If it wasn't for the much bigger stitches around it I would have sworn they were a photo not stitched!

Oh this is gorgeous, I must have missed previous postings.
My dad's recovering from a triple bypass ... so I know how scary their health can be for us kids.

Joyce, I am so sorry to hear about your Dad. I do hope that things go well and that he can get all the tests arranged for a closer timeframe than October. Sending you lots of prayers and positive thoughts and hugs x
Your butterflies are stunning! Great to see you stitching on them again :o) Nothing like a deadline to stir you into action, is there?
Take care

Your work is gorgeous as always! Sorry to hear about your dad; waiting for tests/diagnoses is always the worst part, I think. October does sound like a long time to wait to me, too. When one is in that situation, one wants to know NOW. Best wishes for him.
This is such an amazing piece. You should put it down for August's Theme-a-licious, Things with Wings.
