Glass blowing: crochet hooks, dinosaurs, ice sickles, pens, earrings, and spoons..........
Tatting: jewelry, motifs, doilies, hankies, books, crosses, and much more.
Oh, I love the effect of two different threads on two shuttles. It just adds more glamour. Is one of the threads variegated? I've been wondering how it would look in a variegated thread.Your butterflies really are inspiring.
Yes, one is variegated. Still three stands of 40 wt sewing thread. I try to match up the thread color, as I'm measuring out the 14 yds..3 times. If the color is a little off, it doesn't make much of a difference. I used verigated blue to wight.
I agree with Eliz this is great and can't go wrong with blue!

Very Pretty, You Sell these don't you.
Yes, I do.
I love it! I think this is the prettiest one so far!
I have been distracted by several other things lately, and have totally missed your progression with tatting this Ankars technique butterfly designed by Angela! Each one is gorgeous! I really can't pick a favorite!You seem to have mastered this technique very quickly, and it doesn't surprise me, because you have a natural talent with so many different crafts! Your own tatted jewelry is quite spectacular also! .
I now realize you have generously offered to share your written instructions via email! I'd love to have a copy! I am kathynik at verizon dot net Thanks so much!
