Take a Stitch Tuesday- this weeks stitch is butterfly chain stitch.
This is a new one for me and it is quite easy, having said that I kept doing it wrong, putting the thread around the needle the wrong way. I've used screen printed fabric for the base and it does look a bit puckered in places but I think that is OK for this particular project, it is part of a fabric journal. Each chain is worked over three straight stitches but for one row I used wooden beads instead of the middle straight stitch.

I thought I had better post my pictures before the month ends
The challenge this month is fruits and veggies
the cherries are painted with watercolours and white pen for the highlights
the apple was done with brush pens
and the banana is pen and watercolour
