A butterfly charm !!!!! :)

It has been quite a while I haven’t posted anything . I have completed some of my WIPs but no time to take pictures and post . I was slow on reading blogs too .
I cross stitched this beautiful butterfly charm on a 14-count white plastic mesh using Anchor threads . This chart is from the magazine Cross Stitcher January 2011 issue . As usual , I changed few colors based on available stock at home and my choice . It is supposed to be a bag charm but I am going to use it as a hanging for Anshita’s room in the new house . These beautiful Hibiscus flowers are from my tiny balcony garden :)

 One of the major reasons for my absence is that the woodwork for our new house has started . These magazines , which I bought in last couple of years, are coming in handy now.

 Although I have extensively searched for designs on internet still it is very difficult to come up with right design . Raj wants everything trendy and I go for contemporary . So we are having fights daily . The same carpenters who worked for our existing flat are working for new house too so at least they are sincere towards us and I am comfortable to speak to them . It is 2200 sq. ft. in area so lot needs to be done in next 2 months . It is both exciting as well as intimidating . Hope everything goes well..…wish us good luck  !! :)

    Also, oh so long ago I offered a giveaway on my blog and you won!

Anyway, if you could email me your address information I will pop your stash in the mail --
    just take out all the "*" signs, put the proper @ sign in for the word, and the gaps between characters and you have my email:
