Mom's Butterfly

This was taught at Lace Day
and I enjoyed tatting the edge on this butterfly.

And, after Monday's On-line Tatting Class, I managed to get the butterfly body completed today.

I think, if I try this again (and I have the paper-material for butterfly body), 
I might do the rings a bit differently.    Instead of the shoelace trick, maybe a SCMR.  

The other lesson learned - is to have the holes in the butterfly closer to the edge.

Hope to see some tatting friends at
I think I have DH talked into going with me the day before 
- I'm hoping weather is nice + we can tour the Art Museum in Indianapolis,
 or find someplace else to visit.

The Eiteljorg Museum is fascinating if you like Western Art and Native American History. Well worth the visit.

This is great! I've never seen something like this.
I invite you to my blog!

It looks so nice! I think I'd use two shuttles, and just switch shuttles to make the ring. I haven't gotten the hang of a SCMR, and I always feel like I have too many stitches when I use the shoelace trick.
