Bobbin Lace Design

I have added the next stage in my Butterfly design.  I never make things easy for myself with my bobbin lace designs as, for one thing, my use of colour means many more thread ends to weave in. Not that I'm complaining ... I find it very relaxing and love knowing that my work has a secure finish to it.  Also, the threads I choose don't always 'work' as well as they might. For example, the silver thread used for the leaves in the top wings stretches a little and so it is difficult to get the tension right! I'm happy with the finished result thus far though.
Oh well, I better get to bed before my hubby gets up for work!!!!!
