Butterfly Doily Extravaganza

Over the course of this blog about thread crochet projects, I have completed several doilies that have butterflies in them.  These butterfly doilies seem to be popular pages, so I thought I would re-cap them into one post for those butterfly lovers out there.

Three of these doilies were created for my lovely mother, Leona, for various gift opportunities.  A few of her favorite things are butterflies, hummingbirds, flowers, crochet, and red.  So these crochet thread projects were perfect choices for her!

I will post the pictures in the order in which the gifts were given.  For more information on the projects, feel free to check out the links to my prior blog posts.

The final doily with butterflies also has flowers.  But this one was for ME!!!  I thought it would be such a cheery feast for the eyes on dreary winter or rainy days.  I love my flower garden, and I love my Thread Crochet!  So this is the perfect doily for me.


If you haven't seen my other 2 posts about this project and would like to, here are the links:

Every doily except the small stand alone butterfly are the designs of Elizabeth Ann White.

    1. I must have missed answering you. Sorry! I loved that doily. It was a lot of sewing pieces together. But it was so perfect for my mom that I didn't mind it.
