I haven't been on Craftster for long, but I fell in love with this site the first time I saw it. Crafting is a way to express myself and all these wonderful creations I can see have inspired me to try something different and improve as a crafter. So to me, Craftster means a place where I can get inspired and share my work.

For this challenge I decided to embroider a butterfly, which I find a nice symbol for crafting. Like a caterpillar can turn into a beautiful butterfly, a bunch of thread, papers, pieces of cloth, etc. can be turned into something awesome.




Sorry for foggy pictures, they are taken with a phone.

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.
