Blue and Purple Butterfly Fixed

Large blue and purple butterfly suncatcher.  I made this pretty a year or two ago.  The body piece was recently broken.  Yesterday I removed the broken piece and replaced it.  One of the nice things about repairing something I have a re-usable pattern for. Here it is hanging in that window I threatened to clean and did!

This is a pattern we have had and used for years. It is still popular 30+ years later.  I am not sure but I believe this pattern came from one of the  books published in the 70's. I think it came out of one the first books my parents purchased.  As I become more familiar with mom's book hoard I will learn more.  This pattern is my mom's variation or the original.  Not sure how much different.
