Butterflies of British Columbia
Igne oyasi is a handworked edging made using a needle and thread…Click here to see a Turkish textile blog entry and little video showing the technique!
Knotted Turkish Blue 🙂
Very unusual in our part of the world…I almost sent out a notice to the rare butterfly alert!
I marvel at your threading tales together with those items that come your way…..always enjoyable, educational and creative. Thank you for the charming touches that more than dot your narratives. The butterfly dress is lovely on Vanllla and the knotted butterflies are delicately charming.
Thanks very much…threads go through my life – stitching and unravelling too. A textile enthusiast’s uses for thread are innumerable! 🙂
Becky put it great…you really are a marvel at story telling…your Irish D.N.A. bursting forth me thinks.
The string of blue and white butterflies are darling…and so are Tipsy and Vanilla…what an uplifting story.
Oh and that butterfly dress is so pretty. Vanilla looks thrilled to be the recipient.
Thank you! I can’t seem to help myself…maybe you are right! Butterflies have been fluttering through our garden lately – and the girls were happy with their Knotted Turkish Blue, because it was the only one that held still! You are certainly right, Vanilla adores her new dress!!
What a lovely butterfly garland! I hope that next time the girls will catch a glimpse of more butterflies at that beautiful butterfly bush!
We think there should be more Lepidopteral interest in the Buddleia, but there isn’t…the bees seem keen on it though!
Oh how utterly enchanting! Thank you so much for sweetness of today’s story!
You are welcome…somehow or other every blog post with Vanilla in it ends up sweet!
The butterfly garland is amazing…I watched the video….so intricate! I think I would need her sitting by my side to master that technique…and even then I might just stare in wonder! Vanilla looks pretty in her new dress and I laughed when Tipsy had the net on her head!
Isn’t the garland a lovely thing? We are so lucky that a friend collected it for us while on a visit to Turkey, the Hittys just love it!
Your butterfly bush is splended! Mine are kind of puny this year!
The deer keep the lower branches nipped back, but the tall branches are definitely in good form this year!
