It’s all very quiet here this afternoon, the house is very still.
Hubby is sound asleep, Dan is lost in Spore Land ( A PC game) and Shannon is listening to her favourite songs.
I have a leg of lamb cooking away in the oven so the house is smelling very yummy.
Outside there is a nice breeze blowing and the temperature feels just about right.
So i thought while all is peaceful i would take the time to do a bit of a catch up, It feels like i haven’t been to “beadywitch land” since forever but i know its only been a week, life tends to take over at times but its all been good.
I have been sewing:-
And I am happy to report that the Quilts for the new bubs are coming along very nicely, not quite finished,( actually i still have some way’s to go), BUT fingers crossed the little sweeties won’t come just yet but it is getting close now, 1 is due at the end of this month, and the other is due just about time for Xmas……….now that’s present Santa has no part in, (or maybe he does!)……………….
I have been trying to squeeze in a bit of beading as well, Remember this messy table , well here is the necklace that i was “playing” with :-
At least something pretty came from that mess.
And i have been very busy trying to do some jewellery as I am going to the markets again this year with my friend, Barbara.
When we did the market’s last year it was a totally enjoyable weekend and this year I’m hoping to recuperate some of the money that i have spent in purchasing beads, “fingers crossed, yet again” , and after all Christmas is just around the corner……………….
Anyhow i have a couple of pieces ready but am trying to get some smaller item, like earrings:-
And maybe a bracelet or two:-
And there are other bits and bob’s that i am working on that i will share with you once i am organised……..
I’ve also been very busy working on another project, one that is for a very special friends birthday, which is today but we are doing the birthday lunch tomorrow.
Of course i can’t show you the finished product just in case she happens to pop in, but i can share a snippet:-
But now on a very serious note, I can’t leave you without this warning.
Beware of any husband’s wielding a orange handled saw like this one:-
He and the saw can be extremely dangerous to innocent bushes that DID NOT NEED PRUNING:-
Well not quite to this extreme……..
This reminded me of the time i had dahlias growing beautifully in my garden , just about ready to flower and my dear sweet hubbie came along with a whipper snipper and “tidied” them up, because they was spilling on to the path that NO BODY walks up……..ARGHHHHHHHHHH.
Next time he venture’s into that shed i think I’ll be sitting very close by…….
Enjoy your afternoon……..
