Here are a few cards that I made over the last few weeks or days, one suitable for a man and the other my favorite technique drawing birds on parchment.

Goodmorning friends, well I am well over due to update my blog, as some of you know I have been in hospital and now recovering ok - giving me a lot of time to get crafty lol. whilst dh does the choars, arnt I the lucky one.

Here is a choaker necklace that I completed recently, its going to be a Christmas pressie, but I like it so much I think I will have to make myself one - and this is a bracelet i finished a few nights ago, also a Chrismas pressie - good job the ladies dont know my blog addy isnt it. lol Both were quick and easy patterns.

Hi Ho everyone

thought i would upload some recently finished work before i am off to the dratted hospital.

This bracelet gave me a really hard time as its quite ridged, but i am quite taken by the design.

Ths necklace, pattern by Sandra Halpenny was lovely to work, but i didnt like the colours and that was my fault as the print out was not true, anway i wrote to Sandra and she kindly told me the correct colours and they are now on their way - watch for another necklace.

Finally a sweet little pair of earrings i was just messing about one evening with

I finished this recently - I think it reminds me of sea foam for some reason - I had seen the chain worked on wire, which I copied from the magazine then decided to take it a step further and wove it amongst the copper Medallion I had in my stash.
This pattern was from the Bead and button magazine and i just loved it, sorry I cant remember the designer and now I have created a blog will infuture add more details., I worked this in lemon and black seed beads

This I created one dull and dismal day so I chose lovely bright green seedbeads interwoven with pearls and for the centre I worked a peyote strip and added it with the use of pearls again - I must say this is such a pretty necklace it would be hard to part with it

Something different
This was my first attempt surrounding the focal bead with silver wire.
I completed this last week, it was something I designed myself, mainly as I wanted to learn the Herringbone stitch, I then added 3 focal beads and silver chain.

eye candy for you

Hello bloggers, thought I would upload some recent jewelley I made this turned out really nicely I had oval Indian beads in the centre and surrounded with black and deep gold seed beads in a piquet along the edge

Reunion - Best buds

How wonderful it was to catch up with old friends this year, we all grew up in Rhodesia/Zimbabwe and I have known the girls since i was 5 - imagin this I hadent seen them for the last 20 years and this year we all managed to meet and have a lovely reunion but my goodness it was such a shock - you keep a photo in your mind and when you finally meet again what a shock - how the years have aged us all., but the conversation and friendship was as it was yesterday -
