Beaded Pearl Butterfly
I complicated my life further by adding beads to the pearl tatting. I did the butterfly in two halves and then joined them onto the body. I was a bit worried about having a lot of ends to hide in the body, but here's how I solved that problem: two shuttles wound CTM, the centre thread doubled over in the middle, so when I got to the end, I had four threads and could do two lock stitch chains for antennae. No threads at all to sew in!
