Oldie for Friday. . . . . . . .

Good morning my paddling chums. Hope you have all manage to enjoy some of the sunshine these past few days.

Sorry I have been missing for a few days but work of various descriptions has taken over and on my day off yesterday, I was helping John Lockwood out at his workshop at Creative Expressions in Kettering. It was a busy but extremely fun day.

Thank you for your kind words about my yodelling. The voice is almost back to normal now. Mr D has a tear in his eye. . . . . . . a tear of joy I'm sure!!! 
Didn't need to make many hand gestures. I thought Pamellia's sign suggestion was the way to go, though I added a fourth that I can't print on a family blog, but it rhymed with tugger boff hahaha!!!

Today, I'm joining in with Patricia and the other gals with Oldie for Friday and decided to go with a spot of my jewellery.

I don't think I've shown these before but apologies if I have. Patricia and Hazel will probably recognise them as I gave one to them a couple of years ago to sell for the hospital cancer unit that they support.

They are made from Swarovski Crystals (my crystal of choice) and seed beads and I pop them on silver plated chains.

Its a fairly quick and easy design to bead and gives a pretty result. . . . . .love the sparkle of a Swarovski.

Just a couple of messages. . . . . . 

Maureen, Sterling Moss? Someone is showing their age lol!!!
Val, I hope it was the cheek on Frank Ifield's face you kissed?
Jackie, F1 schedule has been handed over to my boss, lol!!!
Margaret, nice to see you back, especially when you have been through so much lately.

Well, that's me. After a full day with John, I've got 2 full days at the shop, so I'll be fit for nowt by Sunday (no stamina these days lol!!!)

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend.

  7. Good morning Ang, love, love, love all your wonderful creations.
    I have to admit I do have one of your creations which is beautiful. I have it hanging on a wicker heart in one of my Kitchen windows. When the sun shines it creates little Rainbows on the walls ........ of course it reminds me of "you"

    Patricia xxx

  8. Hi Ang, yes I remember them and they are still as gorgeous, I adore Swarkoski crystal and have a few bits that Alistair has bought me. Love the way they sparkle and your little pendants are so pretty.
    If you still make them I'd love to buy, they would make gorgeous gifts, hugs Kate x

  13. Hi Ang,
    You sure know how to make me feel inadequate. These are just beautiful. You clever lady.
    Try not to work too hard, and enjoy Sunday when it comes.
    If I'm old, how come you know who Sterling Moss is?
    Maureen xx

  14. Very pretty You are so clever Ang Never ever tried beading Cud be interested if u selling them

  15. Wow, these are gorgeous Ang!! You really do it all don't you!! My Mom does a lot of beading and she tried to teach me once...I spent a month making a little ornament cover and I swore I would never get involved with beads again!! I could have built an entire city out of pizza boxed in that time!! I applaud you for doing such meticulous work! hugs :)

  16. Very pretty Ang! Must take some patience to do that beading. Have a great day!

  17. Hi Ang
    What lovely pendants! How pretty! So pleased to see fellow bloggers winning cards from C&C. At the last minute I ordered some noble dies and they've just arrived! So I know what I'm doing tonight! Best wishes, Anne O

  21. Morning Ang,
    Lovely your creations, gorgeous. Sounds like you had a good day with John.

  22. Missed this yesterday, yes your gift of one of these beautiful pieces was well received by the chemo unit as part of their raffle. My little heart hangs on o e of the branch bits of my lamp by my chair. Hazel x

  23. In a word - stunning! Swarovski Crystals are also my crystals of choice although I must admit I haven't made jewellery for ages. Hope you are not too tired after your hectic days at work. Michelle x

  24. Hi Ang. Sorry that I haven't commented before but have been away for the week.
    I love your sunny card, I wish I could make my "random " stamping look like yours! Your jewellery is beautiful, I can just imagine how much it sparkles when the sun catches it : ) I hope you aren't too tired after helping John and then working in the shop. Get and put your feet up today. Take care.
