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 -
Yesterday the Church had their harvest festival, and this is the Giant that is pulled along by the tractor through the village and up to the church - followed by another tractor with a bed full of children, unfortunately my camera didnt capture the photo of the children, but it did the Vicker on his bicycle lol., next photo
Hi everyone from a grey muggy day down in Dorset, UK. I finally worked out how to change my template -I hope you are able to read my blog much easier now., have a fun day. Thought i would upload a photo of my little fur baby for you to oow and aarrr about - I love her to bits, she is such a devoted little dog.

I will add a few more beaded items all mainly from Jaycee's pattern - as you may or may not know i lived in Africa most of my life now in UK - and when i found a new hobby in beading i browsed hundreds of patterns and stumbled across all these beautiful African patterns - needless to say i could not resist, and got chatting to the designer Jaycee and we discovered we both came from the same country though we both live on opposite sides of the world now but our hearts are in Africa - the saying 'once Africa is in your blood, you are never free' is oh so true. Enjoy my african beadwork
Well I'm on a roll now that i seem to have worked out how this all works, and the fact i have been up half the night so have a lot of time on my hands right now. Another of Jaycee's beautiful patterns - I loved this one but it was sold within a week, now i need time to make myself one. lol
