Rain, rain, rain

It has absolutely peed with rain today and yesterday and the winds have been so strong that we woke up this morning with all the plants of our kitchen windowsill in the kitchen sink and our loft hatch open. It was a tad breezy! All the plants were fine thankfully although we did closely inspect our oak bonsai and have decided its not just sleeping. We'll do the burial tomorrow at the allotment if the weather is kind enough to let us go down.
I've been working on a new swap at the moment. This time its an favourite animal swap and I'm making my partner items on the theme of butterflies, lemurs and lions :) I've so far made a lemur card, butterfly earrings, a lion necklace and have a butterfly postcard that I will make into a little notebook. I need to search on the internet later and look for some lemurs as the picture I drew on the card came from one of our art books at work and that took some tracking down. Its a crowned lemur and looks quite cute. A bit like a meercat.
I've also got some yellow felt and some bright orange ribbon with butterflies on so I'm hoping to do something with those later.
I've also been making some bits and bobs for my shop. I've made my first pendant which I've taken piccies off but haven't got round to uploading them in the shop. I shall do that later.
I'm also reading Sherlock Holmes and thats brilliant. I'm really loving it and now fully appreciate just how good Jeremy Brett was in his portrail in the 80s. He's spot on with all the little quirky behaviour.
