Hello Edgorina....

The picnic blanket is coming along nicely and it's a good way of using up all the  balls of wool in my bag, our local wool shop has a big "reduced" basket of wool on the floor for only £1 a ball  so I get a few balls whenever I'm passing

it still needs a few rounds adding to it and a nice edging but that's on  the "back burner" for now as I've been stitching more brooches!!!

Let me introduce you to "Edgarina" she was supposed to be called "Edgar" but with those lips I decided "Edgorina" was a more suitable name (ok so I've lost the plot !! lol)

Another little brooch I knitted and it looks quite nice on my dark orangy coloured top, I love the ceramic heart button from "daisy moon"

This is a wristlet made from a pink liberty cotton with a gorgeous ceramic butterfly button sewn on and a jelly tag,

and finally, two watches, this one says 4 o' clock so it's always  "time for tea"

and this one is set at 10 to 2,  time to "sit and knit"!!

So that's my haul for this month have you made any nice bit's 'n pieces?

Love Lucey x

Ohhh, they say diamonds are a girl's best friend but for me it's pearls, any shape or size and I'm hooked!!

At Tenerife Pearl you can fish out an oyster from a dish and Celine opens it and inside is a pearl that she  makes it into a piece of jewellery for you,

so, I "fished out" a dark coloured oyster and waited to see what was inside, I needed another cream one to go with the other two I already had,

I was dissapointed to see that it wasn't a cream one to but delighted that it was a gold coloured  one so I had it made into a neclace.

Well I had to have another go so I let Mr Lucey pick me one out, and bingo, inside was a large cream one.

Isn't it a beauty?

Celine drilled a hole through it and I now have 3 lovely pearls to match my gorgeous ring that Mr Lucey gave  me for our pearl  anniversary (30 years!!)  two years ago

Are you a "pearly girly" too???

I've been on my jollies...

Morning all

I've been on my jollies to the wonderful Tenerife where it was lovely hot sunshine every day for a fortnight,  just laying on a sunbed drinking cocktails and dipping in and out of  the pool when it was too hot, and now we're back home and it's been rain, rain, rain.

Don't you just hate that, you want to show off your tan but all you can see from under the brolly is your nose end!! Never mind, as usual we had a marvellous time and we decided  to go for a ride on a camel which wasn't as frightening as I thought it was going to be

"up you get matey"

and we're off!!
We saw  a mother and a six day old baby camel, it's coat was a bit like a sheep's all soft and cuddly

isn't she gorgeous???

We spent a few hours on a boat  in the ocean to see the whales and dolphins

these were right beside our boat and if I'd had long enough arms you could have touched them.

We usually had a walk down to the beach on a night to watch  the locals  "crabbing" and the sunsets were amazing

but apart from that we just sunbathed all day and read our books...ah that's the life if ever we won the lottery!!

But today it's back to work with my tape measure,

bye for now
