Giving chicken scratch butterfly wings

For some reason the contrasts between chicken and butterfly wings make me want to laugh. But doodling around with chicken scratch last night, I tried out butterfly wings. They may need more perfecting but here are two versions (upper left/ lower right). The others are just doodles.

As you may have noticed the lower row is trying out a pattern of two mirrored and one off set row of double cross stitches. I like the flower shape that came out of that.

Some other doodles.

A few experiments with arrow stitches and a couple of other thoughts.  Maybe you will pick out a triangle or tear drop shape. The stitches above the tear drop work like fly stitches tied down by a detached chain…I think…maybe not I might need to think that over…

The central valley is gray, wet and rainy today.
