Playing around

Now this is one of the ideas I had a while back for an edging. Well, it could be an edging, a bookmark, bracelet or choker. 

I've submitted a similar as one of the ideas for Palmetto Tat Days.  I say similar as the original had a small difference which was just too hard to explain however hard I tried.  Comes of having a twisted brain!!!

It's really easy, actually. The problem stems from living with BC3!!!  He tends to read other things into what's asked for!!!!

It's really pretty. I used your very small butterfly and a size 10 thread in a similar way, way before I started blogging. The very small butterfly so that there weren't ends to sew in.

I do like patterns with no ends to sew in too, Jane!!!

Ah! Color! Those are very cheerful butterflies, and I think they would make the perfect edging!

That would look equally good as a choker or as an edging on a shirt or pillow case.

Very clever! Love the way you used alternating colors without having ends to hide. It's a bright and cheerful bit of tatting. Terrific for this time of year, when we're all yearning for longer daylight hours and more color.

Clever design (as usual). Love the alternating colours without the hassle of hiding ends after each butterfly. Well done.
