This little angel is 12 yr. old Priscilla. She is a part of our little church group. Last weekend we had our first church picnic and she was there. She has had a bad family life and rarely ever smiles. Well, this past weekend she smiled a lot!!! She came home with us after the picnic and spent the night. While she was here she was spoiled with swimming, candy and snacks, lots of attention and some gifts. I have these beautiful earrings from Fox that I love, but cannot wear since I don't have pieced ears and don't wear earrings. Well, this little angel saw them and loved them so much that I made them a gift to her. As you can see she put them on and graciously allowed me to get a picture to share.
She received a few other tatted pieces of mine, and then asked if I would teach her to tat(let me tell you that it was 11:00pm on Saturday night and I had to be up early to get 10 lbs. of potatoes ready and mashed for our Sunday morning church meal-which follows our lesson). So, we sat and she learned how to make a ring. I let her take some thread and a shuttle home with her to practice and I can't wait to see this weekend how she has done. :) Below is a close up of one of the earrings.
