Merry Christmas

I thought i would wish everyone a merry christmas and allt he very best for 2009 to everyone...old and new friends.
I am not sure if i will be able to update my blog much over the upcomming week as Ally is having his operation this morning.
His brain shunt is infected and they hope ot go into his shoulder and cut out the infected shunt then join a new piece on and then redirect it in his body.
So i am running about all over the place trying to be superwoman...not easy with 2 adhd kids but i manage.
So once again merry christmas and i hope santa brings you all you wish for.
lol i got a fantastic bead book in the post from my pal tash this morning so santa come early for me...and my bead spinner arrived too....if only i had the time to play...lol

My pink necklace

This time i made myself a necklace...I made it longer than a normal one as i have a thing about stuff being on my neck but making it longer is definately okay as it feels great.

The seed beads are again from the store in devon and this time i madeit with nymo thread and as usual a magnetic clasp.

This is it round my neck......i love it. Now I need to make a bracelet to match......and maybe a brown one to go with my other clothes...lol

On a happy note i have just found out a couple in the village got married in secret yesterday...so congratulations to Bert & Jennifer
