Butterfly Series - White by Myrthilla Butterfly Series - White by Myrthilla
This is my bobbin-lace work which is more than a year old. It looks a bit filthy on the photo but I SWEAR that it is PURE WHITE!!! It's only bad light...

The other butterflies of the series:

The Yellow Butterfly
The Night Moth
The Green Butterfly
The Blue Butterfly
The Light Blue Butterfly
The Sphinx
The Saturniid
The Parnassian
The Vanessa

Bobbin Lace! So excited to see it! I do it too! My 'leaves' always turn out as tornadoes... Love the design, especially antenna supports - clever
Thanx for sharing! Can't wait to see your gallery!

I'm really glad you like it :) I am pleased to hear that you do bobbin lace too, there really isn't much people around doing it. I'd love to see some of your work :)
Well the leaves thing... I almost lost my nerves before I learned how to make them properly :)

I know what you mean on the leaves... larger pins help.

Lovely work. Is it as difficult to do as it looks? I've been thinking I should learn how to make bobbin lace.

No, it isn't as difficult as it looks :D It only requires some patience, especially with thin fibers. I wish you good luck with learning, the more we are the better, it's almost forgotten art. =)

It's so beautifully done. You've got talent and patience. I tried to learn to crochet before, but I gave up - no patience :D
