Here it is! I had hoped to have this done to unveil for this past Tatting Tea Tuesday. Alas, it wasn't meant to be. Then I said I'd wait until this coming week to show it, but I have no patience for that kind of stuff. So, here she is. Meet Kirsten:
Adelheid Dangela's beautiful butterflies. Kirsten measures 7-3/4 inches tall and 8-1/2 inches wide. I used size 80 threads in DMC black and yellow, a vintage J&P Coats in red for the three-ring clovers and Tatskool's 'Flame Lantana' for the four-ring clovers. And about 462 ends to hide(not really, but it felt like it!), the reason it took so long to get it done.
If the colors look a bit odd, it's because the window is to the left and it's a bright sunshiney day here is SE Michigan. Well, it was when I took the picture fifteen minutes ago. Come on, Spring! Get here already, will you?
Oh, one more thing. For all the effort that went into this, I'm counting it as Motif 14 for my VERY overdue 2009 Challenge.
