Butterfly Pillow

Just finished it! I'm so happy!
Several days ago I received a gift from Natalia (http://scarletsailsminiatures.blogspot.com/) - huuuge amount of silk gauze. The thing is you won't buy it in Russia, no one's selling it. And Natalia was very kind to send me some (no, lots and lots) . I couldn't express my feelings - it's like getting the best Christmas present ever:)
Sooo, I was lucky to have it! I started with 49 count silk gauze and Chinese silk threads I ordered earlier, here's the result (I have another pillow to finish, I'll show it later) :


I hope it's not really bad for the beginner (as I've never worked with silk gauze before) :)  But this is huge inspiration for me. Thank you so much, Natalia! :)
