Everyday butterflies

"Perhaps the butterfly is proof that you can go through a great deal of darkness yet become something beautiful." - Unknown. 

 "Always remember to fall asleep with a dream and wake up with a purpose"
I love to embroider on nice linen or silk and thought I would give a try on a muslin fabric; a fabric used for common purposes.  Personally, I found that it is easier to work with silk and linen fabrics because the fabric works with you to create your design.  The fabric shows though, adding to your work, where the muslin only shows what you added to it.

These butterflies are embroidered with silk and cotton thread on a common cloth and is already sold.

God is still working in ordinary people.  He specializes in taking the commonplace and weaving it into a thing of beauty.  The butterfly is a good visual reminder of the work He wants to do in us. 

 Freedom and beauty in joyous colors that dance across the summer sky.

Fine embroidered linen from Egypt was your sail and served as your banner; your awnings were of blue and purple from the coasts of Elishah.
 Ezekiel 27:7
