nuntium vicesimum septimum (27th post) papilio = butterfly

I thought I'd give one of Rose-E's butterflies a try so here's number 7 in the motif challenge.  You'll notice I didn't do a hanky too.  tee hee.

I'm still going strong on the Quatrain and have finished motif 17.  That means only 137 to go.  Does anyone know a progress "gadget" with Blogger that I can put on here to show my progress?  That would be fun.

Here is another motif that Aunt Rose-E liked to attach to hankies.

I always liked this one but this hanky is silk and all four corners have the tatting. I think it's my all-time favorite.  Does anyone have a brilliant idea for displaying it?
And everything she did was in size 80.

Latin for today:  nunc cartis cum familia mihi ludendum est. = Now I must play cards with my family.


  1. oohhh pretties, and your butterfly is very pretty too. sorry, no idea on the gadget or on the display, end of week mind blank, and hypothyroid brain fog.

  2. Beautiful butterfly! Your Aunt Rose-E would be proud.

    For showing progress on your Quatrain runner, how about putting your pics in a separate Picasa album, and making a slide show of it to put on your sidebar?


  3. Great butterfly by you; wonderful hankie edgings by Rose-E. That woman could tat!
    Fox : )

  4. This is one of the hanky books that tempts me...

    Love my new hankies! Thank you!

  5. That hanky book is enough to make me consider learning to quilt! Gorgeous things, the angel on the front is great too!
    The books I mentioned last Tuesday are the Amelia Peabody series by Elizabeth Peters.

  6. I just realized you figured out the signature! Good for you!

  7. Nice tatting!
    Do a google search for "progress bar gadget for blogger" and you'll get lots of ideas to pick from.

  8. Thanks- I found one for the progress bar, now I just have to remember to change it!


gratias maximas- it's wonderful to hear what you have to say!
