Butterflies are one of the first signs that warmer weather is on the way, so we were delighted when we spied the latest release from Bothy Threads. ‘Lovely Butterfly’ (£31.49) is a brand-new kit from one of its most popular artists, Kim Anderson. Her other creations ‘Love Heart’ and ‘Love Tree’, with their beautiful bead and sequin adornments, are still great favourites with stitchers. The kit contains 14-count white Zweigart aida, pre-sorted stranded cottons, metallic thread, embellishments, needles, stitch diagram and instructions, and the finished size is 26x21cm (10¼x8¼in). We have eight ‘Lovely Butterfly’ kits to be won, thanks to our friends at Bothy Threads.
This competition originally appeared in issue 329 (Feb 2023) of The World of Cross Stitching magazine. Take a look at our latest issues.
