Butterflies and a blogversary!

I didn't stitch this weekend, but rather spent it outside in perfect weather, watching butterflies! Our local arboretum has a butterfly garden and I bet there were 30 of them on one bush alone. I saw so many different colored ones and different sizes. Sometimes they would just take flight together and flutter around. Breathtaking!
Here are some pictures:





I also discovered that on October 6 is my 2nd blogversary! Wow! How time flies by when you are having fun.
I have so enjoyed the online friendships I have formed from this blog and my other, Stitching for a Cure . You all have been a blessing to me.
To celebrate, I am giving away a $20 gift certificate to my favorite ONS, 123 stitch!
You don't have to jump through any hoops to win. Simply post a message on this post and give me a way to contact you if you win! I will be drawing on the morning of Oct. 7th.
Good luck to all and thank you for two great years!
