Tatted Lace Butterfly

Summertime is here and this pattern was hard but I liked it.  

Went for a walk in the forest last summer and found this she must have just laid her eggs. I wanted to tat her colors!

There is a diagram, and written out instructions, you need both for this one! it tats up crumpled like the top one till pressed out!

Who ever thought this one out had great intellect, She truly could see what this would become from the chrysalis state!  

And here is the book it is in Russian, and this may be why it is so hard to understand! With help from my son who is taking this language in High School, he helped me understand a couple of words :)
I will make more in other colors too I really enjoyed this pattern.
