I've been looking for my reading glasses for months now. I've got lots of reading glasses in different strengths, but the really strong pair in its pretty little sleeve has been missing for quite some time now. Time and again, I would shift and stir the piles on my desk to no avail. Eventually I realized they were in my roly-poly bag all along. It's amazing how much you can fit in those little bags Jane makes.
In celebration, I decided to make something really small, what else but Gary and Randy's little mouse. This is from their book Tatting GR8 Baubles, Bugs, and Blossoms, which Jane has been recommending with good cause. I can't keep up with all the new tatting books anymore, but I really enjoy the ones that are unusual or really special in some way, which this one certainly is. Besides the 3D pieces, there are also some advanced SCMR techniques I plan to master some day.
(Since the thread was so thin, I added the eye beads in a different way than the pattern, don't worry if yours look different, and probably better, than mine.)
