Happy Birthday Sally

Sally's birthday was on the 12th (I had convinced myself that it was the 17th for some reason, but heyho), so I knew her pressie would be a wee bit late and of course because it was sent during the snow it meant that it took even longer, even with it being recorded delivery.

Anyway Sally has received it and loves it, so I'm showing it off. I started making the necklace during the Summer holidays, but with the arthritis in my thumbs so bad I knew I couldn't finish it and asked a friend to complete it for me. I also made the little hanging bag and bought the little tin because it just screamed Sally to me.

Winter Wonderland

Well snow started early this year for the UK and of course this Country being as backward as it is was totally unprepared for it even though they'd been warned for a couple of weeks. Everything, including airports, has ground to a halt. I can't see where the pavement and road separate from each other or my front garden.
