more monthlies!

I had started with a bead mat full of sumptious sparklies yesterday and have made one side of a clasp (don't roll your eyes!) and started a rivoli flower.  I liked my flower so much I decided to turn it in to a ring that is to compliment the idea I have in my head for a cuff style bracelet.  So I've completed the ring, and now have the RAW(r) base for my cuff and have started the embellishment.  It's going to be a while before it's ready for photo taking, but I have taken a picture of the ring. It's on a band of even count peyote and the flower beads are from a bead soup mix I bought yonks ago, and I only had a scant amount left.  Which is a pity as I can't make another rivoli the same ...

I'm feeling a bit crappy today though, I was stuck in a cold rugby field for longer than I'd anticipated last night with just a T-shirt and a pair of joggers, thinking I was going to make it to the gym.  When I got home, after a day from Heck (I'm the dolt that went in to the supermarket where I work, bought thirty quids worth of groceries and then discovered despite having the purse and the handbag, I had no blinking bank card! So instead of the fast early dinner, it was a rushed affair after having to weave my way back up to the house and back down to the store through rush hour traffic!), I couldn't face turning up late to the gym and the adrenalin that held me up just ebbed and I felt like a washed out rag.  In hindsight I think I should have jumped into the bath and tarted up the heat but I didn't and am suffering today.

Oh well, live and learn.  Might make some scones soon, after having a bath now, most probably with Piper!


  1. Beautiful Bling! ♥
    Hope you get back to full health soon, i hate feeling "boggy" and not 100%

    Enjoy the relaxing bath!
    Lots of bubbles should cure you

  2. bubbles were provided by Piper who climbed in beside me and proceeded to trump a lot :)

  3. gorgeous flower, Lesley.

    Hope you're feeling better now.
