This little figure - based on one of my favorite themes - butterflies - looks at me with a somewhat longing face. Perhaps she wants to fly away? Her name comes from the "Urban Dictionary" which tells this fun story:
"Flutterby was the original name of the butterfly until Mr. Jiminy down the road invented a machine in 1912 to fly. When he named his machine the 'flutterby' anyone who used the name had to give him 2 pennys for copy write laws."
Lots of fun stitching on this dear little thing. I shall try to keep her away from open windows so that she'll stay here for a little while.
"Happiness is a butterfly, which when pursued is always just beyond your grasp, but which if you sit down quietly, may alight upon you." - Nathaniel Hawthorne
