Happy Handmade Monday !
It's a very dull, rainy Monday here, there is nothing good on telly so I have stuck on the radio and have curled up on the sofa with my laptop ( I *love* wireless internet- I'm a fairly recent convert to it)
It was my mate's birthday party yesterday (her birthday is today) and I'm feeling a bit sleepy after having two late nights in a row (I must be getting old) The plan is to go bowling later which I haven't done for years. Now I say bowling, but my technique is more of a throw and a hope for the best. Its also a bit embarrassing hiring those bowling shoes... while everyone else gets the lace up adult variety, me with my tiny feet has to suffer the indignity of Velcro fasteners. I think I may lie and say I'm a size three and just wear very thick socks and tie the laces extra tight- that should stop my feet flapping about too much.
Here are some (awful- it was a rush to take these) photo's of the commission I made for a friend of my dads. All I had to go on was that he wanted a necklace and a pair of earrings for his wife's birthday and that she liked colour.. this is what I came up with.
I was told that she really liked them and her husband may want me to make a few Christmas presents :)
I also made a bracelet for a raffle prize at my dads bowling club.My dad told me it was snapped up so yey for that :)
Anyway, I have to go and brave the rain and bowling shoes.
