This month is not going quite as smoothly as planned - probably because I may have gotten a bit carried away with my butterfly project!!! Eyes bigger than my crafty time one could say!!!

So …. this is as far as I have gotten on three embroidered butterfly adventures!

May 2014 is butterfly month on Gingerbreadsnowflakes! And in honor of Cinco de Mayo it seems only appropriate that the butterfly series begin with "punched tin" butterflies.

The love affair began when I was ten years old and has never ended!

Windmills have always held a special fascination for me - whether fabulously beautiful designs with a multitude of grilled blades or a tumbledown old relic rusting away on American prairies. I can not help myself. I must stop and gaze at every one I encounter - and listen while the wind gently nudges the blades into action. Now, thanks to a "gentle nudge" from Diane's 2014 PC Blog Hop, I have fashioned my very own windmills to sit on my mantle, hang on my holiday tree and to take their place at my "St. Nicholas table" in December.
