The Blue Morpho Butterfly has been associated with hope and healing by many who inhabit the rainforests where these butterflies are found. This stitchery design was created for my oldest sister who was recently diagnosed with a brain tumor for the second time in her life. It is a message of optimism and faith, and one that I hope will encourage anyone needing a Miracle. It is sized to fit into an 8" x 10" frame.

This eBook includes complete instructions for hand-embroidering this design. If, for any reason you need assistance or have questions, please feel free to contact me anytime at

I've included a Stitch Review at the end of the instructions, as this eBook requires knowledge of basic embroidery stitches. Please download my free eBook entitled,

"Stitching Essentials", available through You Can Quilt This and You Can Make This for detailed descriptions and photos of the various embroidery stitches.
