Jocelynn often tests me in this way. Joce gave me two bracelets with elephants and asked me to make a necklace, as she felt she would get more wear out of a necklace, she loved the elephants. The tassle was also part of what Joce supplied, as well as some of the chain. I added an oval Moonstone and Moonstone chips, Voila! Joce loves the necklace and it looks great on her. The Pearly Butterfly bracelet came about when Joce saw a bracelet she wanted, which neither of us could afford, hence this creation, which is also one of her favourites. Joce loves long chains and fancied a key and a lot of charms. She chose the charms from the my stash, I added a bell, the drop shaped pendant made from buttons and bead caps, we have Charmed Key.
I bought the Elna sewing machine in April last year and Richard named it Elna the White Elephant, as it has taken me so long to actually make use of it.
|Bevan & Felix|
We delivered Bevan's pants on Sunday and had lunch with Bevan and Claire. Below are Bevan's chickens, which are almost like his children. They love the patio and the bench and windowsill. They'd probably be inside given half the chance. The roosters name is Randy, the hens have diffent names, I can't tell them apart but one of them is called Rose and she is a bit slow, (a bird brain).
Photographing them was quite something as they don't stand still for a second. They are quite entertaining. Bevan and Claire live on a smallholding. Horses often feed in the field and Guinea Fowl are regular visitors. Visiting them is like going away for the weekend to a farm. Very relaxing.
