Well, THAT Didn't Work!

Sometimes the things I do with thread ends while waiting here and there just don't work out. I had a concept for a profile butterfly in mind, but it certainly didn't translate well. Of course, I was just sitting and waiting and making it up as I went along. Maybe there being no pattern is a good thing.
Can you tell that the bit of wing at the top is supposed to be the part of the wing you can't see on the other side of the butterfly? Yeah, neither can I. It's legless, too -- how sad. Of course, the thread doesn't help, it's variegated green and yellow Signature machine embroidery thread combined with a cream cotton for strength.
Maybe I should pretend it is a luna moth -- aren't they greenish?
Perhaps I should stick with four-ring butterflies while I'm waiting, waiting, waiting...
