I finally finished up a Christmas present. Yeah!!
These are fleece throws. They are quite large and very soft.
The blue one has the Cowboys logo on it. My hubby picked it out for his Dad so I hope he likes that team LOL
The animal print one is for my mother in law. It has apx 164 hand tied yarn tassels on it. I really like the way it turned out. I want to keep it! :o)
Now to find a box and get them mailed. I hope they make it before Christmas.

My name is Lola and I want to be showgirl!
When I heard I was going to Nevada - all I could think of was dancing and the glamor and the lights!
OK so I may never go to Las Vegas but I can dance on my new owners desk and watch as she creates her beautiful art!

This little bear is apx 5"

She has and embroidered nose and paw pads which have been shaded.

She wears a hand beaded ribbon around her neck.

Christmas Mice

These are a couple of Christmas ornaments that I made.
I finished them a couple of months ago but they were for a gift so I couldn't show them.
I wanted them to be a surprise :o)

The mice are about 3" and made out of a wonderful upholstery velvet.
They are based on some vintage ornaments that I have.
(The mice also have tiny whiskers that don't show up in the photos and their collars are ribbon and beads)

These were such a joy to make. They were one of those projects that just went together like a dream. They didn't come out like I had planned but I really like the way they turned out.

(They pictures are not very good. The color is a bit off - but what else is new. Someday I will learn to take a good picture LOL)
