Home again...

Hello everyone!! I am back from my jaunt to London, and up north where I stayed at the Papa Stour bolthole......I had such a wonderful time in both places - firstly staying with Claire, which is always such a blast {I love her to bits, just for the record!!} and then to meet up with the famous Swedes Karin and Camilla as well was just amazing - we all had such a fab evening at Baltic {cocktails - the best I have ever had!- and dinner}...we are already planning the next meet up! The girls came loaded with gifts for me and C...as such I will be loading some parcels with goodies and guilt quick-smart *thank you both so!!* ;)

Tomorrow I am going to delve into the extended tales from my break....but for today, I am calling it quits and heading off to bed. First day back at the bench {with stinky cold!}....and a deadline for Dazzle means I am back in the saddle, and riding that horse! See how the work is coming on above......

So, friends..till tomorrow - xx

It looks like a jewelry-lover's treasure trove. I'm so full of envy, not just for the items themselves but for your ability to create such beautiful things, that I can hardly breathe.
