:applesauce: :applesauce: I love these and am going to just love seeing your updates! I'm not sure I could pick between them for a favorite so I won't, but I will say that I especially love the butterfly with its brilliant colors and of course the cat with her (his?) contented smile!

Yes, it's a Margaret Sherry design :D I love her cat designs! :wub:

I spend 2 - 3 days per project on a monthly basis. :D I find this very effective as I can work on a lot of my WIPs monthly. :dance:

These are all beautiful but I think I like the butterfly forest best & the other butterfly on flowers a close 2nd. Lighthouse scenes are always relaxing to look at. Look forward to seeing all these projects as you do them. :applesauce: :applesauce: :)

Each and every one of these is beautiful. I can't even begin to pick a favorite. You have great taste in charts.

Thank you! I probably won't be buying it but I'd seen so many Lighthouse charts, all slightly different. I think yours is one of the nicest.

Beautiful flowers, I love the carnations. :applesauce: :applesauce:
