Yay!! It's Friday!!

Ok.. so friday is almost I did start this this morning.. but the day has just flown by.. the kids are coming out tomorrow.. we're doing supper and cake and coffee for my b-day, everyone was working last weekend.. so of course.. need to vacuum.. tidy up.. I'm excited.. love it when they are home.. just will be missing my Shan who is loving Taiwan
So at the beginning of the week.. added to the stash abit... don't you love the shape of that kettle?? what do you see it becoming?
Yeah...I know.. like I needed more
Every January or so.. I clean out my quilling box that I carry with me to shows etc.. and tear and quill all the little bits left from making flowers from the summer and fall before then make simple flowers for magnets etc..
This is before magnets... you can see in the little tub there's still alot of coils to make into flowers..
Now here's a few magnets ready to be varnished..just the beginning of many, many
It hasn't been an overly productive week art wise..have been in abit of a funk and unable to settle down to do anything, lots started just nothing finished.  A good friend passed away suddenly last sunday and it is just unfathomable that he won't be around anymore. Just a few months older too which sure brings things home. He lived well.. enjoyed life.. and his laugh and jokes will be sadly missed.
Anyways.. one of my favorite shows Fringe is on right away.. so will say good night.. have a loverly weekend and thank you so much for stopping by...
P.S. Yikes!! almost forgot my Challenge for this week at I am the Diva.
