Good morning folks. Hope all is well with you and yours.
Thank you for your visits and the comments on my sympathy card. We all know how difficult they are to make but for a fella in his 80's it was a definite less is more.
After extra days at work last week, I'm in today and tomorrow and then I have a few days off to use up some leave. I was hoping to do a bit of crafting but a few appointments have cropped up so I shall have to play things by ear........best laid plans and all that lol!!!
Now, I know that there is a lampshade in today's snap but I found it quite an effective way of displaying my necklace to photograph it...........you're all probably thinking "the girls taken a knock on the head" lol!!!
The beads were one of my presents from Nesta for Christmas. When we went to the NEC in November, The Spellbound Bead Company had some lovely sets on display and I thought this may be a nice one to make for Summer (one can but hope that we get one lol!!!) so Nesta kindly got me the gear.
It was fun to make and inspired me to do another few bits of jewellery. Nesta and I also had a trip out to Lichfield (its only about 40 mins drive) to Spellbound's shop last month so I could buy some more bits so there will be more to come in the jewellery line, if that's ok?
I'm just waiting for the nice weather so that I can wear it as I'd feel a bit of a noodle wearing a fuchsia necklace in Winter lol!!!
Please excuse the picture quality of this shot as it was taken on my phone, through our bedroom window (not at its cleanest on the outside at the moment) and before my first steadying cup of coffee, at sunrise. We are lucky to have a south facing rear (as opposed to my southward heading rear lol!!!) so this was the view to the east. We also get to see some cracking sunsets too. Our Pamellia has been showing some beautiful ones on her blog so I could'nt resist sharing this.
Have a great Sunday and hope a nice week lays ahead of you all.
Ps.........I hate to shatter illusions but no, Mr D did not have a romantic meal prepared for me upon my return from work last Sunday (Valentine's Day). I did have to cook myself but at least that way, we had something edible lol!!!
I've given up trying to teach him how to cook................its like this pearl of wisdom from Judge Judy.............
"Don't try teaching a pig to sing. It doesn't work and only annoys the pig"
I may just get a stamp set made with that one lol!!! (Christine would buy it as she is the Quote Queen lol!!!)
