The symbol for transition or resurrection or re-birth, is the butterfly. Theses colorful creatures are inspirational and uplifting. They represent the evolution of the soul and exude freedom. If you are choosing a new path of destiny, the butterfly is a powerful animal totem.
I like using the extended double crochet stitch in my filet work. It gives me a more square piece.
