The birth of an idea.


Well, not quite the birth as there were a few labour pains getting this far!!! 

This is the Fandango butterfly. Will it ever end - this obsession with a 'bit of a pattern' that I designed a few years ago? 

I'm hoping to get a few more done to test the stitch count before I put it on my site. So far, so good but there's always room for improvement!!

  4. Adorable. My first thought is using lock chains instead of regular chains on the wings (a revised Martha Ess moment).

    1. Good idea, Phyllis but I think I needed a 'normal ' chain for some reason - which has escaped me at the moment!

    2. Guess I will try it when you post the pattern.

  5. So cute! It's great to see the many possibilities that can be generated from one good 'bit.' Well done!
