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.

  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

  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.
