Yeah, it's been a long drought for sure and I do apologize for that and thank ALL of you for sticking it out with me. I'm not sure how long it'd be before I have time to get back to posting and reading blogs frequently but I'm trying. :D
In the meantime, I've gone back to working on Chatelaine's Butterfly Lace Mandala (WHEEEE!!!!!) and am happy to report that I've knocked down two over 1 butterflies in the last few days. That makes is six down and six to go. My favorite so far is this teal one. The combination of colors and tones is amazing!!! But what am I doing talking about it instead of showing it to you? ;)
Isn't that stunning?? Martina never ceases to amaze me. I love the shading at the outer edges on the wings. The colors are unbelievable in real life.
Here are the three butterflies on the left side. So pretty, so pretty!!! My mom better like this or I'm taking it it back. HAHAHA!
Most of the center of the design is done. I've started working on the outer borders as of last night. Watch for a scroll up soon!! :D
