Flutter By : 5

So we arrived back in South Africa just in time for the coldest cold spell, before winter had officially even begun. And houses here are built for the long summers, not winter – you won't find much in the way of double glazing or heating. Suffice to say it took a fair bit of effort to warm my fingers up enough to hold a needle.

Fortunately I'd prepared the fifth butterfly in the series before we left the UK, so all I had to do was stitch it up. And it was like an oasis in the mayhem of moving countries to sit in the late morning winter sun for a few hours with my thoughts and a needle.

But now I've encountered technical problems with my website... So I've posted the pattern for you here in jpeg format, as my internet access is sporadic at the moment and I don't want to keep you waiting (click on the pattern to get the full-size version). Hopefully I'll be able load it on to shortly.

Lovely embroidery! I'm just starting out with embroidery myself and I'm really enjoying it. I look forward to exploring the rest of your posts! - Jules

Happy you arrived safely Kelly!
I would trade my 110 degree weather for yours any day! Lovely butterfly as usual.

Lovely spring-like colours. Sounds so odd to think you're in early winter as the summer gets going here!
