In Part 2 of d’Histoire Naturelle Blanket designed by Christina from A Spoonful of Yarn we are walking through the gallery of entomology, in other words, bugs! There are butterflies and bees on our blanket, with gorgeous details. The stitches in part 2 are complicated at times, and the butterflies are really labor intensive, but I do my best to guide you through the pattern. In this post you find the links to the written patterns, the video tutorials, and all other things you might need under resources and video tutorials.

My d’Histoire Naturelle: Herbarium
I am using the Stone Washed Herbarium colorway to make my blanket. The square we made in part 1 is turned into a octagon in part 2, with bees and butterflies decorating our blanket. The butterflies even have little embroidery details on them, so much work!
Part 2 reminds me of a wooden butterfly I have. It captures what I try to live by, although it’s not always easy.
We have two weeks for part 2, and I do believe we need it. This part just takes more time. I will see you in two weeks from now for part 3.
