A charming day for a bit of bead work.

Morning all, did you have a good weekend?
I had a good day at work on Saturday, busy as always but not manic which was good. 
Then it was time for the Calcutta cup and a bit of banter with friends!

Yesterday I had a quiet day catching up on some washing, reading and crocheting, the perfect way to spend a Sunday.

Today I wanted to share with you a wee gift I made for one of the girls at work who had a special birthday recently.  It's a handbag charm.  I started to make it with neutral colours so it would go with anything but I have these lovely green beads which are near the colour of our uniform, so I thought they were quite apt.

I do hope she likes it.

Plans for today, it should be boring housework but I've decided to have a day of card making, my home stock is very low and I have had a couple of requests to sort.
I need to get my card mojo back into fully operational mode.  It has been sometime since I've sat card making...will I have forgotten what to do?!  LOL.

Finally as I am close to finishing the crocheted part of my cushions I saw this today and smiled so I thought I'd share it with you all before I go away and craft.  Enjoy your Monday.  x

If you insist!  ;)
