I must apologise at the start that I was trying to post this last night and the laptop decided that it would not work, so reduced to the iPad and unable to post the photos which I have already put on the laptop. So here is my post now with photos hope you like them.
I have this month only done very small butterflies and put them together into a set of blank cards. As I have been going to the hospital for injections in my eye tatting has not been as easy to do as usual so here is what I managed this month. I used up many bits off my shuttles to make these butterflies.
Card number one
This is a set of Onion Ring Butterflies, the colours used are white, purple, falling leaves, Christmas red and Green Coral Sea all in no 20 thread. Link to the pattern
Below two close up pictures of the butterflies
Card number two
This is a set of Tat off Butterfly by the tatting player the colours used were white, falling leaves, Christmas red, and purple all in no 20 thread link to the pattern

Card number three
This set is from a pattern which Carollyn found on Pinterest earlier this month and I asked if she would mind if I used it for my pin challenge. Colours used were white, Niagara Falls, Christmas red and juicy watermelon.

Here is a picture of the pattern.
Sorry I speak Japanese so I have no idea who designed it but as Carollyn shared the pattern on her blog I am doing the same.
All the butterflies are from pinterest and use up so little thread, and were easy to make there will be a lots more of these butterflies. Sorry my tatting may not be prefect but I have done my best with an eye that really on some days does not want to focus.
The cards are cream card stock with a backing paper and trimmed with glittery peel offs and a spray of leaves die cuts of which Suzanne will recognise, thanks Suzanne, the butterflies were glued onto the cards.
Do pop over and see what the other ladies have done, I am sure whatever it is it will be good and better than I have achieved this month.
Until we meet again
