I am up to my eyes in dust and rubble!

Not really, but it feels that way.  We now have 4 rooms completed and our tradesmen are working on the next 3.  The new rooms look great, we can't wait for it all to be finished.  S&M are having great fun barking at the workers and Megan loves to run behind them biting their trousers.  This is a bit of a problem for those wearing shorts! 

Anyway, I have been working.  I did the psychic fair in Alton which was no good at all!  OK if you were a tarot card reader but not selling jewellery.  Then I did the Winchester Discovery Centre and sold several items.  I also re-opened my Folksy shop which I decided to do because my jewellery has changed a great deal over the years.  I sold a ring - a lovely amber ring which was wonderful!  Tomorrow night I am doing Ladies Night at Hursley school and then off to Bournemouth BIC centre for a 2 day Festive Gift Fayre on 26 and 27 November.  Then I am back to Hursley school for their Xmas Bazzar. 

I have been busy making things and trying to promote my shops.  I am going to the Desire jewellery and silversmithing show at Winchester Guildhall on Friday with Wendy and Penny.  I can't wait to see all the lovely things I can aspire to!

I used some square wire (2mm) to make a bangle and a ring - I found it much harder to line up for soldering than round wire.  Maybe it's just me. 

Still haven't sold our house in Somerset, we may have to rent it out.  We have been lighting our log fire, despite the fact that it's not that cold yet.  I just love it - we are getting through so many logs.

Well, I am going to try to upload some piccies and then off to feed S&M.

I forgot to mention that the silver hammered heart ring is featured in the Christmas Showcase on, click Christmas Showcase, then jewellery.  I was so chuffed!!
