(Latin for teacher's web)- I'm no spider but I can tat a web. I started learning tatting (shuttle) and Latin the same year - MCMLXXIX.
Other than making the very basic small butterflies with only 4 wings, it would seem that you would have to use size 80 thread for a butterfly earring with more than one round. This one would make a great pendant!
Oh yea, Kathy has a good idea, I just did one not too long ago from Pinterest on my blog it is an elegant one and would be still small in size 20 at moment not sure when I posted it I think no further than 3months ago
Some people do wear very big earrings! It's pretty.
Another beautiful butterfly!
Beautiful shade & pretty tatting ! I like the pendant idea, too.I remember tatting this a long time back when I hadn't transitioned to modern tatting, and it was a bit of a disaster ;-)
Another lovely butterfly shame it's too big, unless you use thinner thread
that's lovely, I agree with Jane, someone would like big earrings
gratias maximas- it's wonderful to hear what you have to say!
