More twin butterflies! These are tatted in Manuela size 20. I found it easier to hide the ends with a bigger thread but I think it would be even easier if these were sewn on something...or like the last ones - I glued them to a card so I should have just cut the ends close and sealed them with glue.

Clearly yesterday was not a good posting day for me. I found the humorous story I adapted to tatting on a website or blog that I found from a link from a link from a link...and an old entry at that. I couldn't find it again if I tried. Where it was posted, the comments indicated it was good to pass around.


It never occured to me to try to find the original author since it was nearly 10 years old, but I made sure her name was there because I always give credit when I know where to give it.

At any rate, everything is now deleted but it's a shame I couldn't share the story.

But that's what NATA is all about....our stories. The crazy things we do for our love of tatting. I'm NATA #67 if you go to read the stories. Mine is 6 years old - I could certainly add to it at this point!

Very shortly, I'm leaving for another bridal shower, the last! I do love tearooms though and I'm looking forward to it, plus I'm going over to Greenfield afterwards to meet up with a friend I haven't seen in months. The weather is perfect too.

5 weeks and 5 days til the wedding & 59 days til the cruise!!!!!!!


  1. Cute little butterflies! I love this particular color of Manuela thread.

  2. I'm also presently using this Manuela colour tatting small butterflies, and I can't stop!


Emails and comments both are welcome and always read.
