Cut and tie

I'm working on a butterfly applique from a vintage Priscilla tatting book.  It's a pretty butterfly with some interesting techniques, but, since it's old pattern, there are many, many cut and ties.  I can't to any clever way to avoid them.  Urgh, as a modern tatter, those ends are really bothering me.

I suppose it's just the nature of the pattern.  Since I can't eliminate them, I'll aim to reduce instead.
