Butterfly #2 by Mary Maynard

Lelia Parry gave flight to 2 more butterflies from Mary Maynard’s collection.

Butterfly # 1 by Mary Maynard

She writes that “I have used beads where the picots should be; however, as I really like to see picots, I’ve switched to keeping the beads on the shuttle thread and push into place when needed. Looks more like the butterfly pattern, too.”

I agree! See you in class!

Butterfly #4 by Mary Maynard

She writes, “Grateful for the class as I was unable to figure out where to start! The final joins in the last ring were a challenge for me and I like the way it turned out.” I agree. The different colored beads are wonderful accents on the butterfly, great job!

See you in class!

A few years ago, we looked at a bookmark in class: Green Knots by Yvonne Reypa. Marco in the Dutch Tatting Guild and Rachler Mohler trranslated and diagrammed the pattern. Karen Cabera made a video demonstrating how to weave the knots. Frances Burgess was intrigued by the pattern and tenacious enough to keep at the directions until she understood them. That lead us in a class earlier in March to revisit the pattern. Frances wondered if anyone else would tat the pattern. Well, we have had several submissions. Here’s the latest from Anna:

As long as we have such a wonderful, International, talented and generous group, tatting will flourish!
