Eclectus Parrot Beading Finished!

I don't know why I took so long to finish her, she is large though, just under 4 by 6 inches.

I did enjoy making her.  In background is another motif from the "Tatting With Your Life" book. was not as thrilled with this one, just didn't seem to tat up quite like I wanted, but looks good for bird background :)  Yellow lighting here.

I enjoyed adding the buttons and some are new and some are antiques.  She was designed from a picture of customers lovely loved bird Lucy I have the construction and picture of actual bird under August 20, 2016.
I was sad to see her mailed off cause " I love Lucy" :)

A Closer Look Tatting

Well here is better picture and mistakes were made on cluny round this is size 80  I was playing around with how I wanted to attach them to the long picots and also one has too many clunies I also would day dream and so some have 19 back and forth and some have 23 or so :) I am going to add more rows and it seem to be square enough  for now

Pin-Chick's Pick, Paper Gift Box, and Tiny Tatted Flowers

I made this gift box for a friend, and inside it holds a set of fine markers. I was in a hurry and did not get all the pictures I wanted to, but if you untie the front. and look at the bottom of dress there is a little slit where the dress opens and the markers sit inside. I had a ball making this.
I did not make the ones above, I saw these beautiful Paper Geisha girls on Pinterest.   Many give wonderful book mark instructions.
Below is back side I used 2 of the large sheets of 12 inch by 12 inch scrap book paper.

She loves the adult coloring and we go to the coloring meetings that our library  has.   I saw these beautiful Paper Geisha girls on Pinterest where you use tongue depressors.

Now to see what  the other Pinchicks are up too!
