It's been so long since I last blogged, I'd forgotten my password!
Luckily I had made a note of it, so all's well!
What have I missed - probably loads, will I ever catch up?
Probably not, but I hope this finds you all well and happy anyway.
Last week I dragged my sister along to a local
jewellery making class where we made the above
beaded flower and hung it on a chain.
I found it really quite difficult at first and was so glad
Kelly was with me as her eyes are younger and healthier than mine
and she was happy to thread the needle for me when required!
She picked the technique up a lot quicker than me too, so when
the tutor was busy she could explain what to do!
We're going back next week and hopefully will come
away with a bracelet each - I don't think there's any
stitching involved so may do a bit better.
I wanted to have a go at home and made a card
with a fabric flower and the centre piece was going to
be a beaded flower
.... only trouble was I'd forgotten how to do it!
Notepad and pen next time I think - lol.
Finally, a couple of birthday cards I made yesterday.
The backing papers are by Laura Ashley
and the one on right is a velvet flock effect.
The dress forms are from Tim Holtz/Alterations
Sewing Room Bigz Sizzix die cut.
I roughly stippled gold paint through sequin waste
on each form.
Our two lovely kittens are getting bigger
and more mischievious by the day.
I've learned to put all ornaments out of reach
(lost two already!!)
and anything dangly needs to be removed, such
as towels or curtain pulls.
We keep most of the internal doors shut now which I don't
like as it cuts out the light, but needs must.
I've also got a fair few scratches on my arms and legs -
can't belive how sharp their little claws are!
We get a 4am wake up call by Leo licking around our faces
- he especially loves John's ears and nose!
Leo is a lot more docile than Lily - and Lily is in charge -
she calls to Leo and he obediently trots along
after her - LOL.
This photo was taken a couple of weeks ago
and they're a bit bigger now.
Thanks for looking - I promise I'll come
and check out your blogs soon too x
