Question:  DO MOTHS COUNT TOWARDS THIS CONTEST?

Answer:  YES!

Question: CAN IT BE ON PLASTIC CANVAS OR DOES IT HAVE TO BE CLOTH?

Answer:  Use your imagination, plastic canvas, a fence, fabric of some kind...as long as it is cross stitched and has beads AND it is a butterfly (or moth as previously stated).


Contest starts NOW and ends on October 31st

The theme for this contest is Butterflies….but with an added bit of sparkle…..BEADS. Stick with the theme, any butterfly will do as long as somewhere on the finished piece are beads.

Mine's coming on so well now - over half-way finished, and planning on having a right old stitching session this afternoon to get even more done.  Looks like I will actually have one finished in time for once! :p

RIGHT, now since I (FOR ONCE) managed to catch a challenge the month it started instead of with three weeks to go until the finish.... I might actually be able to get one done in time!!  Yay!  Now to hunt a nice little chart - I''m sure I'll have one somewhere...
