I am pleased to have finally got around to picking this up again. It was a shame to have done all that work on it and then to leave it abandoned for so long…
If I'm honest, it's not my favourite design which probably explains why I didn't rush to complete it. There are LOTS of chains and tiny rings which means that it has a tendency to "misbehave". I've tried to press it as I went to keep it in shape but I can see it will be a nightmare to wash!
Also, if it was me, I would have made the butterfly motif with just two little rings at the top rather than three. I know it's a stylised butterfly but it would have looked more "butterflyish" with either two small rings (for the tip of antennae) or one small ring with long picots (for a head with antennae). Don't you think?
Still, I can finally see the end in sight of this really long-term project (I can't find the original post at the moment but I think I started this - I'm embarrassed to say! - two years ago?) I now have 38 of the last round butterflies completed and 18 more to go.
