Time for butterflies to fly away

I think I am back at tatting again, yahoo. My Aussie tatting mate and I had another online tatting session at MSN today working on a Frauberger design and my hand didn't mind the tatting at all - not yet at least. It was a great time and a good way to spend a day at home. Thank you very much, mate.
I do not have any picture yet because we didn't get to finish the piece so here is another picture.
It is a lot of butterflies that I have done over a long time with the leftover threads on shuttles that need to be emptied for other purposes. My Guild are collecting these so they have something to give away when they go to demonstrations and exhibitions.
They also accept owls, fish and angels but I have mostly done butterflies over the years. Soon these will go into an envelope and be mailed to guild so they fly away and maybe inspire one or two to learn to tat - and if that happens it will be lovely.
Now that I have started tatting again I hope nothing will stop me again in the near future so I hope I can return to blogging on regular basis too. As time permits after work of course. I have also ordered some more HDT and will keep an eye on the postman next week, maybe I am lucky and he will have some love threads in his bag for me.

It's nice to hear you are tatting again! I am glad to hear that it didn't bother your hand. That is good news!
The butterflies are a nice "inspiration gift" for possible future tatters. :)

and it was a butterfly like these, that brought up my interest in tatting last summer (2013). So, I can tell, it works :)
