Tatting On The Way to Texas


This was a fun pattern, but no mention in her book about how many cluny stitches!
Tatted Butterflies by Adeleid

With out pressing out or adding stiffener to the butterfly, my daughter wrapped floral wire to connect to hair clip and put this in my granddaughter's  hair.

This little model was hard to keep still at the photo shoot :)

I am wanting to tat lots of butterflies this summer after visiting  

This is a field of  winter wheat that was ready to be harvested, which they did on the 4th of June. a new crop will be planted and harvested in the fall.  These two dogs are my grand-dogs, and they were just supposed to stand beside the field not step in :)  (they are very big Akita). They watch over the grand children when I am not there ha ha ha!

  4. Your lovely granddaughter has grown a lot! How does she like being a 'big sister'? That is a very, very lovely butterfly. I think you choose the correct number of stitches in the Cluny. It all depends how tight you make them.

  5. The cute butterfly looks great on the hair clip, especially as modeled by your granddaughter ☺ The wheat up here is almost ready to harvest but now we've had the rain that was needed a month ago and the fields are wet. Could be an interesting harvest this year. Your grand-dogs look like they'd do well looking after the granddaughter. I wouldn't want to mess with them.

    1. Oh I hope the rain doesn't mess up all the work, it's so sad when it happens. I think wheat looks beautiful in the field. And yes those dogs are huge like little lions!
