Boterflye wings

The bottom left wing stands out more. It is the same stitch I used for the body. I don't think it is a good use of space, but I'll probably keep it. It would look nicer if the circles weren't in a straight row. But perhaps if the circles became gradually larger as they reach the center of the wing and then become smaller towards the body, it would look better.

The left wing looks better without the huge space that is visible in the right wing. But now the left side has a square shaped space, which I'm not happy about. I think it would be better if I had a bit of cording to fill in the space.

I also see that the left large wing is slightly smaller than the right...but I think that is being a bit picky.

So, I'll rework the bottom right wing like the left and add some cording close to the body of the larger wings in hopes of eliminating those odd spaces.

Until next weekend!

Yes, I see what you mean and you have seen the solutions too. I know next to nothing about this type of lace and I'm enjoying seeing you work a piece of lace...

Teri, this is a simple, simple lace to learn. The tedious part is basting the cording to the design (hmmm...the proper term escapes me), but the fillings are so much fun. I actually find them very relaxing.
I'm glad you are enjoying it come to life :)
