Basic Skills Necessary:

  • You should know how to do cross stitch and back stitch.

Pattern Description:

I am lucky enough to have a Rose of Sharon in the garden, and it is covered with the glorious blue-mauve flowers you see here. I have grown small plants which I keep on the window sill from the seeds, and these have come through a pretty pink-mauve. Isn't nature wonderful?
I have this picture complete and ready to go in the frame. Then it's just finding the place for it, so many crafts, so little wall space . . . I think this picture is the reason I got into designing more charts for butterflies, specifically for petit point (coming). I know it is just a Cabbage white, but I think they are just so delicate and beautiful creatures, and only the female of this species has spots!
Whatever you do - HAPPY CRAFTING!
