I'm on a roll!

The first butterfly is done!

Next up, a psychedelic mushroom that I plan to give to my brother and SIL as a gift when we go to their cabin in July. I'll have to get moving on that, as I'm not as fast as SLOW when it comes to this stuff! LOL

Then I will get back to Mr. Sea, who has been patiently sitting in my workshop while I tend to other things. He's a very patient sea serpent!

How very beautiful. Your work is so so so neat. Yep - you're a real perfectionist. I WANT ONE. I'm think CALAMITY and I can make one while she's here. I still have a rebar stake to cover on the wall, and that's what I plan to make to cover it. You did a fabulous job on this, girlie. You're GOOD.

Thanks, SLOW. Coming from you, that's a very flattering compliment!

In case anyone is interested, I'd created step-by-step instructions on how to make the butterflies. They are on my blog linked below. You may have to scroll down a couple posts to find them. I'd had someone ask, so I thought it would be fun to create a tutorial. Plus, it gave me an excuse to make one more! :-D

That turned out really nice, very pretty. And you were concerned about it not working out. It's so hard to see objectively in the middle of a project.
