They are all I need to please me,
They can stimulate and tease me,
They won't leave in the night,
I've no fear that they might desert me.
(You'll understand the reason for this later in the post.....which is quite long today, sorry Julia!)
Straight on with the desk this week..
A little bit of bunting for a very special WOYWW baby :D Hope you and your little Ruby like it, Sarah! It's fun making pink things - I always hated the colour when I was younger. Being a tomboy, I was against all things girly...but do you know what, I've grown into it and possess...shock horror...items of clothing and jewellery in that rosy hue!! Watch this space for more revelations *grin*
Do you remember a couple of weeks back, I made a charm for my mate's iPad cover. Well.....you can tell what's coming here, can't you???....my other friend Kate kidnapped me and forced to enter Hobbycraft...where she inveigled me into buying some basic tools and beading accoutrements. She's done a lot of beading herself so taught me a few moves. Oh dearie, dearie me. This could be the beginning of a seriously bad obsession....
Oops, did I really get all that? But I already had the red velvet fabric at home....Here are some of Kate's creations..
Some of my new beads and my first attempt at earrings...
By now, the red fabric was hurting my eyes!! So I found some black..oh, that's better! You can see the gorgeous Union Jack tin that Julia bought me in which I'm going to keep my tools etc. The little storage box will fit in as well, so that's handy. I've been experimenting with a handbag charm and a new pair of red danglies to wear out when I'm playing with my brass band (nothing too OTT for that!.) Then I really got the bit between my teeth...
I love the colours in these different beads. Now comes the hard part, I shall have to try to part with some, I can't wear/use them all!! When's the next fair...?!
I had another fabulous ATC arrive this week, it's a 3 in 1 bit of gorgeousness, courtesy of Nerllybird (Helen S).
I love the sewing theme, the heart, the initial and then , inside....A sentiment with which I entirely agree!! Just look at all the detail... just awesome. Thank you, Helen, I love it!
Finally (!!) after last week's modelling of a very flowery apron, to redress the balance, I thought I'd leave you with G3 on the evening of his Prom.
That's more like it, he says!!
Have a great week- see you soon......
