Butterflies again

Another butterfly doily finished - my excuse is that I wanted to check the stitch count again but in all honesty - I just enjoyed making it.

This one is made with a size 40 thread. 

I'm afraid blog posts maybe a bit scarce and spasmodic for a while. I really need to focus on making the trip over the pond or I'll end up in America with no clothes!!! 

All tatting supplies (for my lessons) plus the tatting bags, brooches and a few bracelets that are going in the vending room are in the suitcase, but I can't seem to get motivated to sort out clothes.

Lovely butterflies! Good luck with the clothes packing. Your advice to me might apply, one step at a time!

Tatting things are the most important! - you'll squeeze a few clothes in at the end. And this is another very pretty little doily.

I can't say that I blame you for tatting your lovely butterfly doily again. I'm feeling the itch to get ready for Tat Days also, and I don't have nearly as far to travel!

Lovely doily!
Just out of curiosity, how big is it across?

Jane Eborall said...

The size 20 was around 4 to 4½" so this one in size 40 will be a little smaller, Christine.
