Winged 'things' and results!!!!

Before I start today I have a confession to make!!  I've found several new blogs to follow myself since I launched the giveaway yesterday.  Oh, quite a few people didn't add their email addresses to their comments but don't worry I'll hop on a plane and fly over to whatever country you are in (or take a bus, Jenny!) if I haven't got an email address.

OK, instead of waiting until I get back home later I've hung around until 8:45 this morning and have got my random generator on the Ipad up and ready to go.  A round figure of 80 dropped in and the winner is -  BONNIE PETERS.  Congratulations.  Can you send me your snail address, Bonnie and I'll pop it in the post tomorrow?  Off out for the day now!!!

Now for today and again looking at the subject 'winged things'.

Nope, not an aeroplane this time - I think I've seen the last of those for a while (quiet nudge for those still working on the TIAS)!!!

This is a fairy which flew in the other day from LeVert who made her from this pattern.  As she said it is a lot of work but worth it.  I've made it a few times since the pattern went onto my site and have also done it in a size 20 thread.  Guidelines for the head are available for a larger sized thread - do ask me if you want to make it.

Then a few days later she sent in a dove too.  I'm SO relieved to find somebody else can follow the dove pattern as I kept altering it every time I made one!!!  That's me, though, never have known when to leave things alone!!!!

Just wondering what the dove would look like in black - a vulture, maybe?  Hmmmmm.

Congratulations to Bonnie, there's a lot to enjoy in that lot!
The winged creations are fun, I've been trying to think of other birds to engage your third brain cell- perhaps a kookaburra next time? (well, you've done a Kiwi for them over the ditch, and kookaburras are so cosy, all lined up together on their wire every evening).
The other bird I would really really like is a sulphur-crested cockatoo! Or a pelican, whose beak can hold more than his belly can.....

I am speechless, so .....

THANK YOU, Jane!

Congratulations Bonnie! She is going to love her new little tatting bag. I know I love mine that I got from you.

The little fairy is very nice. I have always wanted to make this. I will have to move it up on my "TO TAT LIST".

I agree with Maureen, a cockatoo or pelican would be cool to tat.

Have a great day!!
