So here's what I did:
1. Japanese Buttonhole Twist for the blue butterflies made with the Fly, even the side closures and Bullion knot bodies and French knot eyes
2. Silk thread (really hard to stitch with as I have rough skin) and added the Blanket stitch edged wings and French knots within the wings
3. DMC 1-strand metallic black for the Fly stitched antenna

Yeppers I've totally enjoyed stitching these and THANK YOU Vivienne for stitching them and posting the tutorial! I sure have been learning a lot from the Crazy Quilters International group through their various Round Robins and checking out the photos various members post of their stitchery!!! Yes, even the other CQing groups I'm in they too provide the platform that is quickly advancing my portfolio of accomplished stitches - even I'm seeing improvement in my details which is good!!!
We all learn as we grow - if we don't then what's the point???
