RPL Butterfly

Ruethe's Boterflye

This small Romanian Point lace butterfly is underway! The cording is worked in #40 pink and the filling is also going to be in #40, but white. It measures 10.5cm x 8cm...perfect for a card, which is what I am making it to go on. I wanted so badly to make the antennae with curly tips, but couldn't do it...oh well.

I asked my daughter to draw a quick butterfly, which explains why it is on regular paper. I didn't have yellow transparent film either, so I used a clear plastic packaging.

I'm out of practice, as you probably can tell, but it feels great to work on lace again!

I don't know which fillings I will use yet...probably whatever I find easiest to do since I am out of practice.
