This looks like a really easy and fun stitch! I bet we can come up with all kinds of interesting looks.

Do you think any of the 7 arrangements in our Stitch Exploration will work with Butterfly Chain? I'll be thinking of that idea. You?

Who requested this stitch? It wasn't me because I had never heard of it. It does look like kind of a fun stitch to play around with.

Probably Carol. She seems to have an inside track with Sharon (*wink*).

Carol Neale-Broughton said...

Me neither, but they do remind me of Cy's bow-ties standing on end!

Connie Eyberg Originals said...

That's who I suspected, but I didn't want to name names or point fingers. (I hope she didn't hear that)

Debra Spincic said...

Probably 5000 times faster, though!

Cy said...

You're not wrong there Debra!!

Cy said...

Woohoo, did someone mention Butterflies.

Debra Spincic said...

Oh sure, this will work into your CQ block perfectly!
