...That wasn't really. Yes it got windy and wet and ferries were cancelled and several attractions were closed, but compared to the dreadful scenes seen in the UK and further afield we got off lightly. I made this point on Facebook midweek when the island was hit by a power cut for several hours. It happened in the small hours when most people are asleep. But goodness, the moans and groans online were incredible.... asking if they would get compensation for spoiled frozen food from the electricity company and suchlike. It was off for 5 hours at most! Surely people know that unless they open their freezers their food will be fine for hours! No ones life was in danger...No one lost their home or their possessions. Yes it was inconvenient, but it wasn't the end of the world for goodness sake. People need to get a grip and look at the larger picture before spouting off about trivial things.
Sorry....rant over now :)
On a crafting front...I got the hang of a new weave!! Yay! It's only a very basic European 4-1 weave but I am really pleased to have got it sussed :) here is a pic, it's not been tumbled yet so is a little dull.
I absolutely love my tumbler polisher...I stuck some hematite and silver earrings in there last week...I spent the next few hours wondering how the hematite would fare. It came out beautifully actually... Really shiny, and you know I LOVE shiny :)
Rococo in Liberty Wharf, Jersey are selling my bracelets at a rate of knots which is absolutely fab!! As quick as I deliver them they're flying back out the door...another yay!!
Got my big Christmas Fayre mid November coupled with a Xmas order for Rococo so I am going to be super busy building up some serious stock.... am hoping my dicky thumb is not going to let me down...fingers (and thumbs) crossed :).
And so there is my week...Don't forget to go check out Handmade Monday and I'll see you again next time!
Bye for now
