Just popping in

To say hi, hubby came home after17 days in hospital, life has been on hold, he's not out of the woods yet as he needs to go to Barts in London for further surgery, but we are being positive and keeping cheerful.

I have made a start on my re-worked jewelry, I have made 3 brooches, at the moment they have no clasps but I'm sure I will find some on E bay unless of course you know better :)
 This isn't the best photo but you can get the idea I took them to a monthly market my daughter did last week and lots of people commentated. I have also offered to make one off items using peoples own bits of jewelry but I'm just useless at costing, can anyone help me out here ? I intend to put them on a card when finished.

I hope your all enjoying the lovely weather, Easter and the Bank Holidays went with a bit of a blur for us, so we saved our Easter cake and eggs for hubbys homecoming, who needs Weight Watches I hardly had anything to eat whilst he was in hospital, even the dog lost some weight :)

Popping out now
 bye  Cate x

I love the brooches. Sorry, I can't help with costings, I have no idea about these things.
I use a shop on Ebay for brooch backs, It's called BFNT I think. they usually deliver the next day.

I hope all goes well for your Hubby. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

Much love, Em x
