This is the longest I have gone without a posting. I apologize for that but I am working on something big and it is taking me longer than I thought. I am hoping to have it done by this weekend as I can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel.
Today I treated myself and went to the zoo. I love animals and nature so much. I love zoos, I think they are a great way to educate people and it is a wonderful place for families. However, I felt conflicted the whole time about the caged animals...especially the large cats who seemed very unhappy. And on the other hand I think some of the animals are perfectly content to not have to worry about gathering food and protecting themselves.
Anyway, the highlight for me was the butterfly exhibit. Yes I do love me some butterflies. I use real butterflies as inspiration for my tatted butterfly patterns, so I took several pictures today. You've seen a very small sampling of my butterfly designs but I have many more I've been keeping under my hat. 19 to date.
Here is a close up picture I took today. I've never seen a butterfly face this close. It is very interesting.
After the zoo, I walked through a rose garden. It was a perfect day for weather and I really needed to get out of the house and away from my projects for awhile.
This one smelled really nice too!
No pics of tatting today, but I think my next post will certainly make up for it!
