Good morning and happy start of the new week to you all. January is almost finished and February is just around the corner. How nutty is that?

I had a lot of difficulty stitching the Rhodes butterflies that are a feature of the piece. After the sixth time of ripping floss out, I decided that I could just finish it with charms. I like the way it turned out. I just need to find the tin that came with it in order to mount the stitching and have an actual finished finish. I may rip out the initials and use my 'new' last name, although I may just be lazy and not change it.
At any rate, here is the stitching all finished:
