Lazy afternoon………

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:-

copper danish knot earrings


And maybe a bracelet or two:-

spiral weave

herringbone weave

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:-

birthday gift  

But now on a very serious note, I can’t leave you without this warning.

BEWARE !!!!!!!!!

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:-

 when pruning goes bad 

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…….



sweet peas


Enjoy your afternoon……..


Stay safe

  1. It seems to me, your Father has been giving Patrick lessons on what you REALLY do when you get into wifey’s garden with a saw???
