Perfect for bridesmaids

Happy Monday everyone. I have been a bit quiet this week but I have been hard at work and then it was my friends hen party at the weekend. I needed a lazy day yesterday to recover lol.

I am still making another friends invitations for her wedding and so that is taking up a bit of my time. They should be finished tomorrow or Wednesday hopefully and then I can start making my jewellery again.

Here is a little bracelet I have made for a friend of mine to give to one of her friends. I think these are perfect for bridesmaids as they are simple, pretty and can be made in any colour.

I am off to get ready for my appointment at the doctors - it is time for me to have my holiday vaccinations - only 3 weeks until we go to Turkey - I can't wait!

Have a great day everyone, I will try and post tomorrow too xxx

Poncho set

Good morning everyone. What a busy week for me this week, 45 hours to work - only 6 left to do this afternoon thank goodness. Needless to say not much crafting has been done.

I am busy making wedding invitations for one of my colleagues though and i will share photos of them when she says I can lol.

In the meantime here is a photo my sister sent me of my little niece yesterday. She is wearing a cute crochet poncho and hat set that I made for her.

Hopefully I will have some new makes to share with you really soon

Little poncho set

Good morning everyone. The start of a new week and it will be a week of night shifts for me - 4 of them starting tonight. I do not mind them too much but all you really do is just work or sleep. Never mind, I will have the weekend off which is a bonus. Ryan is coming home today for a couple of weeks so that will be nice to have him back for a while :)

I thought I would share a couple of photos of a poncho and hat set that I made for my little niece.

Looking at it she should also get some wear out of it in the autumn too.

Really enjoyed making this cute set.

Have a fab day xxx

Ryan made the finals of BBC Young Brass Award 2014

What a busy couple of days we have had. My son Ryan made it to the finals of the BBC Young Brass Player of the Year. The finals were broadcast live on Friday on Radio 2. What an absolutely brilliant evening. There were 4 players in the final.

I could not have been prouder of him. He played so well and his attitude is just wonderful. He had lots of people in the audience supporting him including some of the children he teaches on Saturdays who brought their parents along too.

Sadly he did not win but what an amazing achievement to have made the finals. If you would like to listen to him playing you can do so here ...... He is first on and plays at about 12 minutes into the programme.

You can also listen to his semi final performance here if you wish.

He plays without any music and completely scares me to death when he does this - clever lad lol.

Have a brilliant day everyone - hope you do not mind me sharing my news xxx

Morning everyone. I have a day off today and I have been up with the birds - typical. At least it means I am not spending half the day in bed. Hubby is also off today too so we will probably pop out for some lunch later which will be nice.

I thought I would share a kumihimo bracelet today. I really do love these made with long magatama beads. There are endless colour combinations and they always look lush.

I will be back later in the week with some really exciting news about Ryan. 
Have a wonderful day
