Eclectus Parrot Beaded and More Clunies

Been working off an on with this beading project, I was commissioned to make. 

This bird is called an Eclictus and only the females have this bright colorings these are some steps I use.

She wants to frame Lucy and the paper behind is the smallest size. I have been having fun finding little trinkets to add to the beading and incorporating them in. 

the actual picture of Lucy is below


Looks like lots of the tatting bloggers have been making clunies and I'm not sure if I will keep this round I started cause one of the clunies is imperfect :) but undecided the thread is so small.
hope you all have a great time at your pursuits, till I post again hugs from Carollyn:)

  2. It is extremely rare to find a female bird with brighter plumage than it's male counterpart ! Must Google - Lucy is so beautiful :-) I like what you have done in beading it.
    Interesting doily - the tallies look perfect :-)

  5. Lovely parrot, I have always wanted a parrot, but never got that far and they do live a long time. She's going to look gorgeous when you have finished with him.
    Clunies, they look good to me well done in trying them and the thread looks very pretty

  6. Wow, so much work in your parrot, to wonderful effect. Your clunies look good - they look like flower petals that in nature would not all be perfect either!

  7. Such a pretty parrot and the likeness of the beaded version is amazing. Your clunies look great to me, but it is only you who can decide whether to keep the round. I think it would be a shame to destroy, please don't!

  8. I think your doily is precious and one or two wayward clunies would not deter me. Please do carry on. Love the parrot.
