Frozen Fingers.


Well not exactly frozen fingers...but they are pretty cold today. In fact the last few days it has been rather cold....just when I thought we weren't going to have a decent Winter.

I have been neglecting the blog. I have been having lots of fun getting out of the house a lot since we moved here. I guess it's 'cause there are actually places to go and things to do, which our last home lacked.

This past week, I have discovered 2 extra nice little spots to take Summer to. One is a nice park near the sea, that has Pelicans and Crabs, the other is a sweet little beach and when the tide is out, you can go walking out onto the sand for ages and ages and you get to see heaps of little blue crabs. Some on their own, some in massive groups all running the same way.

I took the hubby there today, he hasn't seen it properly till now, but the sun didn't show :( so we didn't really see any crabs. But Summer had great fun digging sand and throwing it! And we just enjoyed walking through the puddles/streams in the sand with our shoes off.

So because I have been going out more, I have been spending less time at the bench. But here are 2 pieces I have made since the last blog post...

My first ever bracelet. Which turned out so nice :) And a very large Labradorite Flower ring, which also turned out nicely :)

I have been on another cabochon shopping spree and have about 20+ on their way to me. Half of them turquoise, the other half are dyed agate. I can't wait to get them! Though I am out of silver sheet at the moment, so can't make anything till I get new stuff in....hopefully this week...

This week....

I got a new phone and I turned 31.

I'm wearing 'what the shrek' OPI nail polish :P

I have been sewing and buying lots of patterns off Etsy sellers....but no finished product to share yet....

All in all it's been a pretty good week.

Tomorrow we go to Gold Class Cinemas to watch 'Inception' and we can't wait!!!

Till next time :)

I can't believe it's winter over there, while we're suffering sweltering heat over here.
How lucky that you live by the ocean!
Have fun with your new cabochons :)

Cool sounds lovely and living by the coast must keep you filled with inspiration.

Lovely new work, btw.
