Not what you've come to expect.

Hey seriously, who would have thought I'd actually be working on something? Last week I had a nice day with Debbie and I got some butterflies cut out. I thought I'd share my cutting sizes with you in case you're nuts and want to make some smaller butterflies. I'm still in love with this block and I've totally given into the fact that it's easier to follow Amy's tutorial and just make my smaller size. Why do I torture myself with crazy notions?
For each butterfly cut: body (1) 1 x 3 1/2 rectangle, wings (2) 1 3/4 x 3 1/2 rectangle, background (4) 2 1/2 x 1 1/2 rectangles. The only thing I did different in piecing mine was that I don't trim my wing piece at all.
And just to further tempt you in the butterfly making, check out Nedra's blog here and here.
Ok, time to get back to work.

These are so cute! I am already suffering from klosyes fever:

and may have caught the butterfly flu now (still recovering from the Blackbird Designs Trick or Treat basket virus).

I love the happy colors of your butterflies, Pam. They really are addictive, aren't they?

So cute Pam! At first I thought.."whoa! Pam, put your glasses on! They're crooked!" Then I realized they are supposed to be Duh! Anyway, yours are just too sweet. . . and now you have me feeling flighty. Guess I will have to try some out.

All the gals are doing it. I feel like I'm in Jr. Hi. and this is the new denim or the new dance. It is killing me. I have so much to do but I have no self control. (even my teachers gave me Cs in self control!) I want to stop writing pattern instructions and start making butterflies. Maybe I'll cheat and make a few.......
