Look What I Got!!

I was so excited when the mailman left a parcel at my door to-day. It was from my dear blogging friend Monica Magnus. I had signed on her blog to take part in Pay it Forward. I can hardly wait to play with all these wonderful things. Look at the face! Too cute and I got chocolate hugs and a fortune cookie andall kinds of little extras. The fabric on the bottom was used to wrap it all in. Thank-you so much Monica. You are such an inspiration.
Now I really must get on with my obligation to Pay it Forward too.Are we girls suppose to be having this much fun!

Did You See What I Saw?

WOW!! did you see the eclipse of the moon? It was a beautiful sight. I nipped the top pictures from my daughters blog which she took herself,,,, you should have a look at her blog as she is a very talented artist and writer(Proud Mother got sidetracked!!)but the others I took myself. Now the big orange one was a terrific opportunity to get this shot as I rode past on my broom!!!!!VBG
Oh Yes I forgot to mention the only picture I REALLY got was the dark one with 3 specks in the middle!!!!!!!!!!hahahahahhaha The others I really got from the TV!!!!!!
OK so I haven't had enough sleep lately and I'm giddy!!!!!!I think I better go to bed!

I was working on a cuff bracelet and finally finished !!! This was one of the bead-alongs we had on my yahoo beaddreamz group
I thought I was one step beyond my capabilities, but I trudged forth to give it a try.
Much to my surprise I got through it and it is actually wearable!!! The focal pont is an earring I saved, the mate being lost. I love waterlillies and this piece was especially pretty I thought.
I made a few other bracelets like the ones shown here. It is an easy pattern and I needed some no brainer time after I got the cuff to-gether VBG
Hope you like them all. Now I wonder what I will do next......
OH!!!! I hear my Embellisher machine calling me.... Better run....
