On a { butterfly } wing and a prayer

Some put up a struggle as they wrestle with yielding their expectations.

Others go willingly, succumbing to the rhythm of Inspiration’s song.

      Hi there! I sure am 🙂 I'll be on maternity leave for about four months, and once we're all settled after the baby #3 arrives my plan is to work on the pattern to release when I return in December. I hope you can wait that long! 🙂

      Hi Sarah – I'm sorry, it won't be released before Christmas. I'm currently on maternity leave and won't be returning until the week before Christmas so it will most likely be released early next year. Thanks for your interest though!

    I MUST make these for my twin girlies for Christmas! I see you won't be releasing the pattern for Christmas though so can I ask if they have some sort of batting inside? You enjoy that new precious bundle you have! These are amazing though and I cannot wait for the pattern! 🙂

    Can you tell me if you have ever published the pattern for your lovely butterfly wings?
    I would love to make a pair for my niece for Christmas – she 'flits' everywhere – I think she should have wings too!
