I have managed a break between entertaining the g’kids and thought I’d better add some of the insects I’ve started. I have the yellow butterfly in stages here. I found it is easier to fill the wing before buttonholing the edge as it looks better. When I buttonholed first, it left the edge raised. I made a boo boo with the largest wing and covered the wire with yellow, so I went over it with black. It’s a bit thicker than the underwing, but unless I hate it when I sew it onto the material, I will leave it as is. There are two flower wasp wings and a set of dragonfly wings also.

  1. These will look gorgeous when done. What type of wire do you use Maureen?

  2. There is nothing on this block that isn;t wonderful! The yellow rose tree……the iris under it….the little wee flower seam….and the meandering ribbon are too too much. I am so happy that you posted these! ktj
