When I was years ago invited to teach at Palmetto tatters days, the first person I met while going from the sleeping room through the garden to the classroom, was Sherry Townsend, an eccentric lady with a lot of red long curled hair and very colored clothes. She saw me and said to me: you are Iris. From that moment on we became friends and she has become the test tatter for my books, a work she seems to enjoy a lot. So also for the new book she has tested all my butterflies and given me precious suggestions to make the book the most perfect possible. Thank you, Sherry, I hope we will have an occasion to meet again. Here is the picture of her Christmas decoration: The buttefly book can be bought from Lacis

I have eventually startet to work on the book I was long time thinking and procrastinating because of the complexity of the descriptions. Therefore I will publish - with the help of my husband and daughters - tutorials for learning the various techniques. These techniques are all included in the flowers and leaves, on which are the tutorials. These exercises will make the realisation of the butterflies much easier.
