New Tatting Experiment and Flowers

I saw a pattern for a butterfly on a large regular shaped paperclip. I did not have a regular shaped one but I had this type I had bought for a different project. So out came the shuttle and the butterfly pattern I have been making from the start of tatting again. This is the result. It holds very tight to the clip. I was surprised.

These pictures were taken of my 2 Trumpet Vines. They are just starting to bloom. Some of their branches almost touch the ground. I love the orange color and the Humming Birds just love them too.


  1. Beautiful tatting! It would make a pretty bookmark, perhaps?

  2. Butterflies on paperclips are very popular right now. That's kind of a cool shaped paperclip! :)

  3. Beautiful tatting and beautiful trumpet vine...thanks for sharing the photos!

  4. Cute idea to put it on the paperclip.

  5. Fun idea to put the tatting on a paperclip!
    My transplanted trumpet vine only has foliage now, no
