A new mini blogger with fairy dust on her fingers

Even the most diligent student (me!!) needs some 'time out' now and then and mine is normally spent wandering around Blogland.  I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw this TINY tatting at a new Australian mini blog The Needlework Butterfly a few days ago...

It's not only exquisite, it's exquisitely perfect.  How this is humanly possible is beyond my comprehension.   The talented mini-artisan is IGMA member Beverley-Anne Miles (she has kindly given me permission to post her photos and mention her here). 

Bev is no 'one trick pony' - her other accomplishments include tiny crochet, knitting, cross-stitch, petitpoint, filet lace and beading some of which you can see on  her website Miniature Needlework  (you can read her interesting profile here.)

As for myself, well my new work area is finally useable and I have made a start on a little secret project ...  no, I can't tell you about it yet because then it wouldn't be a secret any more!!  All I can say is that it has something to do with a tree and it's for a certain very short person who calls me "Grandma'" :)
