Several months ago,
I visited LaPorte, IN
and found a Workbasket Magazine
with this tatting pattern ---
called Summertime means Butterflies
by Mary H. McCarthy
And, I made a couple attempts.
I think with the pearl beads - will need to use a different size crochet cotton (maybe size 10)
Or, I may need to use smaller round beads ... but, after messing it up the first time around,
I did manage to get the blue butterfly tatted!
I also tatted this lovely pattern by Jon Yusoff
(made a few hearts using this pattern)
I enjoy making up this heart!
