Another Day………………

Good morning

Dh returned to work today  so that means the year ahead is officially beginning,

I opened the shop on Saturday, but it was very quiet,

And  there’s only a couple of week’s  left before the school year also begins,

“Sigh”………….

I so enjoy the freedom of the holidays……….

Yesterday we had Mom and Dad,  “AKA” Grandma and grandpop” come  for a visit,

Grandma brought us in one of her very Yummy Trifle which I can tell you  was demolished very quickly after lunch,

Thankfully it was only in a very small bowl ,

Much better suited to the like’s of DH and I who tend to makes ourselves Ill after eating too much especially when its in that  extra big bowl……………………………..

After Lunch Grandma was treated to a beauty treatment by the would be beautician/Lawyer…………

Painitng nails

I think she enjoyed herself………………..

Besides my quilt, I have been attempting to learn a new chainmail technique, known as Jen’s Pind………………….

Jen's Pind

                                         Made with hand- cut Jumprings

Yay, once I got it, I found it quite easy and very  addictive,

and  it’s so interesting to be able to turn a piece of wire into something so wearable.

Mind you  trying to get that perfect cut on the jumpring  can be quite an ordeal as well, I usually use cutter’s but last year i brought a jeweller’s saw as it’s meant to do the job easy, the  perfect   jumpring.

Up Until yesterday it had been sitting on that Shelf where all those things that I Just “Have to Have” sit…………………….

But yesterday it was  brought out for that long time coming trial…. ….

Thank goodness DH was on hand to help, and after a “Google Search” was performed we came up with a gadget  to hold the coil while being cut .

The Jump ring’s in the photo are just  some of the resulting attempts, thank’s  to DH, He  managed to cut the Perfect jump ring……………………..

So

Dear Hubby,

You’ve got the job !

The saw was defiantly a great purchase,

Well worth DH angst……………

He, he, he……………….

Today,

High temperature, extreme in some parts of the country,

I Shall be staying Inside, with the air con……….

Wish i could send some warmth to those that are covered Knee deep in Snow………….

NO BABY……………………………

Tomorrow,  Tuesday is the Day the Dr intervenes………………….

Stay safe
