Good Morning

I've had  enquiries from a few friends who were a little concerned at not seeing any blog posts recently and it is very nice to know that I'm missed.  I'm fine and have been keeping busy with lots of things including of course trying to keep up with the weeds and long grass in the garden - sadly a losing battle at the moment but I will catch up eventually I'm sure and anyway it can't just keep on growing, can it??  I've been doing quite a bit of beadwork recently which is very time consuming and I can share with you a picture of a  Christmas bauble which I decorated.  Not without some frustrations I must say because of course this type of work isn't easy to hold firmly in the hand while working and there is huge potential for the long thread to catch around any (or all) of the 'dangles' while working and believe me, it does!!

I will try to post on the blog but it won't be daily for the moment - part of my time management strategy which doesn't seem to be working as well as I'd hoped.


  1. Lovely to see you posting again Val...but quite understand and your time management....your bauble decoration if gorgeous it looks very Victorian and love the coloured beads you've used....


  2. Glad you haven't got lost in the long grass!
    The beading on the bauble looks great - even if the 'dangles' give you a hard time.

  3. Such a beautiful piece of beadwork Val nice to see you back blogging :0)

  7. Beautifully beaded bauble Val! I never would have the patience for that I'm sure. Glad to see you're ok and I suppose we should not wish for the weeds and grass to stop because that will mean Winter's here. Our grass is definitely not growing as it's had no rain hardly for weeks.
