Moving forwards.

 A reasonable start to the year with both reading and crafting.
 I have just finished my fourth book of the year so far ,and had two more stitching finishes .

These are both Love Quilts squares , I have a couple more to get done then it will be finishing those UFOs so I can have new starts Yay !.
 
 Had to do some colour juggling with this one as I wanted the wings to be mirrored and they aren't on the chart. I have stitched this one before. Still love it .
 This one was the cause of more frogs than I would like . I felt like I unpicked more than I stitched ,so was very glad to have it done.

No stitching today as it has been a busy chore day , but hopefully back to it tomorrow.

Thanks for dropping by .

The butterfly looks so delicate. I think I would have wanted to make it symmetrical too. Sorry the frogs visited you. Strange, but that seems to happen with the more simple designs. :)
