On a { butterfly } wing and a prayer












































She sees you and approaches without caution...












































Some put up a struggle as they wrestle with yielding their expectations. 



Others go willingly, succumbing to the rhythm of Inspiration's song.



But all will love her in the end.

Hi - I was wondering whether you're going to release this as a pattern? I just love them, and am getting into quilting! xo Buena Suerte with the new baby!

Hi there! I sure am :) I'll be on maternity leave for about four months, and once we're all settled after the baby #3 arrives my plan is to work on the pattern to release when I return in December. I hope you can wait that long! :)

Look forward to the release of this pattern. :-) Would love it to be in time to make for my 3 granddaughters for Christmas as the eldest is very 'in to' dressing up in pretty outfits!

Hi Sarah - I'm sorry, it won't be released before Christmas. I'm currently on maternity leave and won't be returning until the week before Christmas so it will most likely be released early next year. Thanks for your interest though!

Thank you for letting me know. Hope all goes well with baby :-) and look forward to the pattern. Will it come to us automatically now?

I MUST make these for my twin girlies for Christmas! I see you won't be releasing the pattern for Christmas though so can I ask if they have some sort of batting inside? You enjoy that new precious bundle you have! These are amazing though and I cannot wait for the pattern! :)

Can you tell me if you have ever published the pattern for your lovely butterfly wings?
I would love to make a pair for my niece for Christmas - she 'flits' everywhere - I think she should have wings too!
