Happy Easter. I've completed my Leaf necklace, I really enjoyed making this and love the end result. (designer Sue Stallard)

Meet my goddess, Arianna, goddess of what? I haven't decided yet. I did her at a workshop by Helen Cowans, a great tutor, full of lots of inspiration and ideas. The best part is that I almost had her completed on the day except for stitching on the hair and tassle. This only took about 30 minutes when I got home. Arianna is now hanging proudly on my wall, not like some of my workshop projects lying unfinished in a box.

Hi, if you wondering what I've been up to this last month, this is what I've been doing. Sitting on a stool which is perched on top of scaffolding tower painting the ceiling and staining the beams. This contraption was the brilliant idea of my son, much better than keep on going up and down the step ladders. The cats thought this was great. Thankfully, I've almost finished the ceiling and I allowed myself yesterday off before starting on the walls and went to a workshop organized by the Embroiderers' Guild.

This is a pendant to a necklace I am doing. The designer is Sue Stallard. The leaf was fun to make and I am surprised how rigid it is. Only the chain to make now, but Lucy said that she had been negelected for long enough and sat on my beading tray stopping me playing and having fun.
