A finish, Progress, TUSAL, and a few other random things!

I figured an update is long overdue considering I was on a "stay cation" last week over the 4th of July holiday here in the US. My grandmother is in town so I didn't spend the whole time stitching but I did spend a good bit of time on things.

First thing first...I made it past the halfway point on the Butterfly cushion I am making for said grandmother. Here is where I was when I last updated:

And as of 7/6/2013, I have made it past halfway:

Butterfly Cushion
DMC Floss 3 X 2
28ct. Linen
I did have to take it off the hoop as my grandmother will be spending more time at my house this week and I do not want her to see it.

So I started and finished something else:
Heart - Brigitte
Threadworx color 1005 "Cherries"
30 ct. Lugana 2x2

It was very easy and quite fun to stitch. I also started a new birth announcement kit for a niece that is on the way:

There wasn't really amy part of the stitching to show as it was only 33 stitches last night but I will be working fast and furious on this until it is complete.

I also spent some time working on some unfinished sewing projects as well. I started making quilted coasters and am moving right along
4 coaster set
Moda "Sassy" charm square pack
Finally, I have my TUSAL progress:

The majority of the threads from this month are from the butterfly cushion and the ends from the quilted coasters. :) You can see other's progress at Daffycat's Blog.

Happy Stitching everyone !!

The butterfly looks fantastic! Congrats on finishing the heart. I'm following another blogger who is stitching that baby design on a quilt.

I love the butterfly you're working on, who is the designer?

The designer of the butterfly is Felicity Hall. Thank you both so much for your kind words,
