Beautiful Handmade Statement Necklaces and other Fabulousness from Neena Shilvock - Inspirations and Designs From the Week Gone by
Hello amazing readers, we've made it to the end of 2018 and it's the most wonderful time of the year - allegedly! This applies to those who are warm and well fed, sheltered and with their friends and family. However, the plight of the homeless has been raised over and over again this year, more than any December I've ever known and I've decided to help out in the local soup kitchen on Christmas Day once I've served our meal. I've never done this before and am a bit anxious about it as I don't know what to expect. We have friends to eat with us, and then I will go out and help the efforts of the good people in the nearby church.
I've had a bit of a rest from beads although my fingers have been itching to make up the ideas that have been jumping into my head. I gave my juniors doctors the suncatchers I made earlier and they all said they loved their gifts.
My fingers were aching with withdrawal symptoms so I eventually gave in and made a wire butterfly suncatcher for one of the ladies at work.
Have a wonderful Christmas folks. This is the very first year I've had both Christmas and Boxing Day off in ages - however, as penance I'm having to work all of the New Year's Eve weekend. I'll leave you with this clip from a Christmas special from Mrs Brown's Boys - and for those of you who haven't seen this show before, the main protagonist is a man in a dress, just in case these things have to be spelled out to you. I find this show quite funny, and Michael despairs of my sense of humour - ah, well, I do have some faults, one can't always be perfect (she says, shining her halo!).
Take care folks, and have a lovely day. I'll catch you next Friday, same time, same place
