More butterflies

I woke up this morning to find that two of the three new Nora Corbett releases were butterflies that I stitched. This is Miss Columbian Nymphalid:

And this is Miss Goss Swallowtail:

It's hard to choose my favorite between these two!

I sent another model back last week, and should have another one finished in about a week, then it will be time to start my first full-sized Mirabilia, which will be hard to part with when it's time to send it back!

The winner of the Snow Globe kit remainder is...

Please send an email with your mailing address to rrowe @ (remove the spaces) and I will mail this out later this week. If I don't hear from you within a week, I'll draw another winner. Congrats!

Hope everyone has a great stitchy week!


  1. Your stitching is absolutely stunning. Love seeing all the lovely ladies you stitch.

  2. These are simply stunning. Love the bright blue colours, they actually made me say 'oooohhhhhh' out loud when I saw them. x

  3. Those are stunning! The blues are just beautiful. Will you ever get them back?
    Congratulations to Ariadne.

    1. No, I will never see these again except in pictures--sigh. :D But that's part of why I like doing the smaller designs--they stitch up pretty quickly if I decide to do one again for myself.

  4. Awesome Melanie!!!! Good for you!!! :)

  5. Miss Swallowtail is just stunning!

  6. I love these!
    It's hard to pic a favorite, but it would have to be Miss Columbian Nymphalid.
    I love all of the blues in her, and her boots too.
    Great job stitching them.

  7. I just found your blog through a post on FB. I saw these beautiful butterflies released yesterday and they are amazing. Nora is amazing and you did an awesome job on the models. They are gorgeous!

  8. Oh is it me?Was there another Ariadne? I am so happy thank you so very much. I will e-mail you! Bytheway the butterflies are lovely and in my favourite colour blue!AriadnefromGreece!

  9. I sent an e-mail, I am not sure if there are dots between new and rr. Hope you got the e-mail.

  10. Wow, they are pretty! I think I like the Nymphalid best. It must be hard to part with your work all the time, but at least you won't run out of wall space as quickly as other stitchers do.

  11. These designs are beautiful. Your stitching really brings them to life.

  12. The kit arrived safely today thank you so very much! I hope I will stitch it soon!AriadnefromGreece!
