A Break and a Butterfly

    I have to take a break from the carousel. The rings are so bad that I decided to redo the last 2 rounds. I am going to cut off the brown round and get the ring count corrected. I may start that today. Hopefully, I will be able to tat today instead of installing another dishwasher. Haha.

    That said, I went to our meeting of the Palmetto Tatters Guild yesterday. We worked on a tatted tube to insert into a pen. We probably did more chatting than tatting.
    I got in a copy of Iris Niebach's book on butterflies and made this one. I took the book and passed it around. Someone said that one of the teachers scheduled for this year at Tat Days is going to teach one of the butterflies. That is something to look forward to.

    They did like my butterfly. Of course, I had reasons to start with this one from the book instead of one of the others. Mostly it is the simplest to get going with. Secondly, I saw it has clunies, so I got my loom out and went at it.


  1. Lovely butterfly, looks a lovely book, I have it on my wish list

  2. This is the first I have seen the cover of her book I may have missed her blog with it on it. I love your butterfly and look forward to seeing you add more to your butterfly collection 🌹💟🌹

    1. I suppose you know what the club dues at the Palmetto Tatters Guild is, don't you? One butterfly per year. I will probably do several.
      Thanks. BTW, jealous of the Queen Shuttle you got. Hehe.
