Make, learn and talk about needle lace.
Here is another piece of Point de Gaze based on the same design as the other butterfly piece.
I worked it in a #50 cotton, with a #100 (or 120) cotton for the Pt. de Gaze ground.
For fun, I added an "Arachne"spiders web!!!
There is a second layer of upper wings, but this does not show up clearly.
My ground stitches need a lot of practice!!
