WIP Butterflies and Blossoms

I don't often do cross stitch, I find most of the patterns kitsch and it's slower to work than blackwork. But once in a while I come across something that I like and this time it was a kit from the front of UK magazine CrossStitcher.

It's nearly finished (I'm not doing the butterfly) but i used 2 strands for the outlike instead of one so I need to buy more thread and haven't got round to it yet.

This kit is an example of a pattern designed by a Bangladeshi group called Swajan for Traidcraft.
