Time to catch up

Finally my bear is finished - thanks so much to Rhona for all her help!


I've also had a lovely surprise & received these lovely items in the mail from the wonderful Lynette Anderson.  She's been madly working  on a new BOM that looks fantastic - check out her blog for a jigsaw puzzle style preview: http://www.lynetteandersondesigns.typepad.com/ 


I helped a friend with some scrapbooking stuff & was surprised to receive a lovely Thankyou gift from her in return. How lovely & sunshiny? This is one of three flowers in a pot - so hopefully I can look after them well enough so they'll come to cheer me up next spring too!


Also been doing some scrapbooking - love adding those flowers & bling!



Neil gave me some of the new Prima Flowers & Embellishments to play with & I came up with this. My_girl

Check out www.nerinnasnest.com.au if you want some of these yummy flowers!

I've gotta run again so I'll catch up again soon!

Have a great day

Isn't it annoying when. . . . .

You have typed a lovely post - well composed and full of interesting stuff & then you go and DELETE it by accident?

AAARRGH!  Oh well - will try again later - have to go meet some friends now.

I love spring

The sun shines, the flowers are beautiful & the smells wonderful.  Well except when they keep you sneezing I suppose - sympathies to those who suffer badly from hayfever.  I do, but not too badly thankfully.

Today I was tidying the single room of our house that acts as Study, Craft Studio, Junk Storage.  I came across some of my beads and can't help myself but lay them all out - they are just so yummy. 

Such a beautiful rainbow of colours:


They look great already (except for the blurry photo) but one day they may turn into this:


(This is a lovely design I made for my best friend's wedding.  As one of the bridesmaid's I wore this set with a black dress & the bride had a pale green pearl version that matched her dress perfectly.)

More for the to do list.

It just keeps getting longer.  Bear is still a WIP - having trouble with nose & can't go any further at this stage - will need to beg Rhona for help.

Have cut fabric out for Freya - now just need to sit down & sew.  Perhaps tonite?

Til next time - have a happy sunshiny day!
