Albino bat... more finished

Here she is as she looks this morning. I have to do the beaded webbing and find her some proper red eyes. I just temporarily added these eyes. They are too big, and I wanted red. She is coming along very nicely. I was surprised at how quickly, then, duh, I realized.. it is because she is so much smaller than Bellaluna!   I am going to make her her own perch, too, as I did for Bella.  The plan is to hang her with Bella on Bella's perch, but, if I enter her in the fair next year (which I probably will), she will need her own.
Better go find that perfect limb....

Michelle's giveaway

Just found this.. what great looking bears! and such an awesome giveaway..
check it out.

Albino baby bat.. so far

Here are the beginnings of my albino baby bat. She is much smaller than Bellaluna, as she is meant
to be her baby. I tatted the body first, then the head. It took me 4 tries to get the face and head small enough for her little body. I need to find some very small red animal eyes or round top buttons to put in as her eyes.
 I am now working on her arms and finger frames. This is the part I attach the beaded webbing to. The legs and then the wing webbing is next. I have one wing frame almost finished, and I will show a picture of that when it is done.

tatting today

I had a headache all day, so I didn't do much except tat. I have had this little albino baby bat in my head for a few days.. just poking at my brain, so I thought I would tat her to get her out. She is going to be Bellaluna's baby, and albino, a whole lot smaller, 'cos she's a baby. I tried to make her face about 4 times before I got it the way I wanted it. It was hard to make it look cute, small and still like Bella. Her body was pretty easy. I am now working on her wings.This will take time, as I have to solid tat the fingers, then put in the webbing, like I did for Bella. I will post pics later.

the Doctor is in...

Doctor Who that is!
Here is the wonderful T.A.R.D.I.S. bookmark my Anne Bruvold over at Nuperelle. I have had the pattern a while, and since I have friends who love Doctor Who, I thought I would make them an ornament/bookmark for Christmas. So, I guess this could also count as one of my Ornament Challenge ornaments. I added the little white beads to the top to look like the white 'Police Box" writing on the actual T.A.R.D.I.S.
 I really think it adds some umph to it. I also am going to join a Doctor Who swap over on Ravelry next year, so, might as well make one for that, too.  Great pattern Anne, thanks!!
