After a weekend of on/off sewing my butterfly brooch is finally starting to take shape. It has been a very fiddly process, particularly adding the spangles – especially as my fingers are rather like oversized bananas! The directions are very explicit, clear and simple to understand – but in practice it takes a lot of patience to get everything just so. I see little point in rushing to finish and then not wanting to wear the product because of mistakes that have been made along the way – and we are always our worst critics. I finally decided to have a break when my eyes started seeing double!
Just looking at the picture, I can spot several spangles that are not lying flat. This will really annoy me and I may have to go back and redo them.
