Lucky Me!


Met my cousin for lunch and she brought me some gifts,lovely Brads, rubber stamps, tack and peel for my acrylic blocks, a 7 Gypsies ATC holder and a lovely pendant (see picture) handcrafted by herself - would you believe it's a piece of broken blue and white china soldered around and put onto a chain so now if you break your china just recycle. She has gone off up the motorway on a wool buying mission and will be back with me in a week for a few days - with instructions to buy anything she thinks I can't live without.

Jeez now I have to collect pieces of broken dinner sets---I can hear groans from the garage already---but truly Maureen what a lovely piece of jewelry.

What a great idea:)
In answer to your question, no I won't be able to go to the quilt show because I will be on Crete!
I absolutely love your embellished book.

Wow Maureen, the pendant's stunning. I picked up a couple of pieces of broken china on the beach at Southend last weekend, no idea what to do with them (thought on an ATC maybe) - shame I can't solder!
