Welcome! Welcome! you have landed in my wee corner of Blogland, so glad you did. Thank youy for taking time to visit me I really enjoy having you here.
No card today I have been very busy, also very lazy at the same time............seems rather crazy.
I have been working on a project that is taking so much longer than I thought it would. I also have had so many others things going on at the same time. Anyway! I decided to trawl back to see what I had that I never posted. I saw this I thought I would use it again, I posted this when I started my Blog.
A few days ago I mentioned I had sent Sue Wilson one of the pendants that Hazel and I make. Sue had helped me, I asked her something, she delivered, I was delighted. It was near Christmas so I thought she deserved a little gift. I noticed she always wears Pendants so what better to send her than one of ours. She showed photos on her Blog of her at the Birmingham Trade Show and she was wearing the Pendant. It matched her top perfectly, Hazel and I are over the moon.
Hazel was Diagnosed with Womb Cancer a year ago next month. Hazel had a Hysterectomy, of course that was her stuck not able to do much for a few weeks. Then it was the very radical Chemotherapy which was hard going to say the least. She cried tears, we all did. However Hazel being Hazel decided rather than cry the "tears" she would make some Pendants Tear Drop shaped. I would travel over to her most days and we worked together making Pendants. Hazel would do the Tear Drop shapes and circles, I did the Hearts. I made boxes to put them in, we sold them to raise money for the Chemo Unit that Hazel went to. It was used in their "Comfort Fund" for things for the patients. Then we discovered Maggies Cancer Care a centre in the grounds of the Hospital where Hazel went. It is for people with cancer and their families, they do wonderful work. The next lot we sold they got the money. We are still making and selling them with the money going to Charity.
This is a selection of some that we have made and sold.
Unfortunately you do not see any of the Tear Drop shaped ones very easily. They are the 3 little boxes sitting above the box with the Green tissue background.
We also made and sold lots of Button necklaces, it is very difficult to get enough BIG buttons at a reasonable price now.
Although some people think they can raid their button box to make a necklace it is not that easy. You need lots of matching buttons......................what`s in your button box?? Yep!! lots of odd buttons. OK I have raided mine for some odd buttons for something I have been working on, but never got enough to make a whole necklace yet.
Right off to get on with this project I am working on in hope that it will be finished soon to let you see I have not been sitting with my feet up doing nothing.
That`s it for today
Thank you for calling by I really do appreciate it
