Tatted Earrings!

I decided to work on some tatting and wanted a small project so ... Earrings! I have just completed these earrings made with shaded topaz color thread. They are made out of rayon thread to look like little flowers only these have a Swarovski crystal in the center! Very tiny and delicate, these earrings are only 3/4ths inch wide at their widest point. I'm very pleased with how they came out and plan to make more. These topaz earrings are available in my etsy store - http://peachtreecottage.etsy.com

The circus is in town!

And little Bailey wants to go join it. She's been practicing her *clowning around* with her little hula-hoop and she's all ready for the BIG TOP! Her name is Bailey (pronounced "Bay-lee") which means "clown" in bearese.

I used neon colors to make her 'clown' outfit. They include vibrant pink, orange, yellow, green and blue. She was alot of fun to make.
