A Lady’s Fancy by Szulet Creations

Chart: This Szulet Creations chart was bought as a pdf file. The chart is printed over four pages. The symbols have been selected for their diversity and the grid is printed very large. The backstitching lines are shown in red. This is a very easy chart to see and follow.

Stitches: Pattern uses whole cross stitches and backstitch.

Materials:  DMC stranded cottons. Stitched on Dreams with Angel 18ct “Light Desert Rose” Aida.

Designer’s Notes: None.

Why I was attracted to this design: Yes I know.  I know. I KNOW. It’s pink. I do however love the colour combinations here. I like the dusty pink and brown combination.  I have a few of these butterflies in my stash.  I stitched different one in the collection a few years ago and it stitched up in just a couple of days.

So why haven’t I stitched it? Well for one its pink.  I don’t have any pink fabric in my stash.  I think mum might have the perfect fabric if she hasn’t given it away – I might have to ask her.  The second issue is the same one I’ve been talking about all week, I forget about all of my pdf charts because they are just files on the computer. And files stored on an external drive I had to dig out at that!  I really need to print out the cover charts and add them into the physical files so I see them when browsing.

July is Pink month on The Stitching Hangout so maybe I should ask mum for that fabric ….

Where can you buy it? This design can be purchased direct from Szulet Creations for $7.00 (US)

Discussion questions: Do you like stylised designs like these, or would you prefer to stitch a more realistic butterfly design?
