Pin challenge: Complete!

By the final hour, I finally managed to finish the Ankars Butterfly.

She was a challenge for sure. I don't think I have it in me to do more but if I should ever attempt this again, I will definitely use larger thread. If you want all the gory details, they'll be in the Pintrest Challenge Blog.

    1. The size of the beads make an enormous impact on how well this will lay when finished. This was made with size 40 thread and I had to buy new beads to find some that would work. It was worth it though. Happy Tatting!
