The Butterfly Fan: Jackie G. Le Vasseur, designer

Project: The Butterfly Fan
(also called The Oriental Fan)

Designer: Jackie G. Le Vasseur

Type of needlework: Needlepoint

Comments: This is a Guild group project that I took what seems to me ages ago, but it is always fun to look back at old projects. The fan was designed to be stitched in values of blue on eggshell congress cloth and contains both a butterfly and a flower. I love Jackie's idea of adding a little tassel. I think it adds such a nice little touch to the framing.
