The butterflies were a lot of work and I was not happy with the way I overlapped two of them on the circle..... so I made a new background.  This was by far the easiest way to redo the circle.  First I trace the ferns onto the organza, then I outline them with YLI green metallic thread and then colored them in with green fabric paint.

Then I cut the butterflies out of the old background and fixed them on the new.  Now they each have a  place of honor.






On the previous circle I used sequins to do the motion squiggles.  I really did not like the way they came out so I used Superior Glitter thread and really liked the results.  I like it so much I ordered 4 more colors on line and can't wait to get it.

Beautiful stitching. I've never tried that Superior Glitter thread...I"m going to have to Google to even see what it is but it sure looks pretty. You're becoming quite the pro with that hook!!

It's lovely and the silver thread is so much lighter and more elegant - it doesn't fight with the butterflies. Fabulous!
