Here are the latest jewellery creations. Above is a bracelet made for a friend's special birthday, way back in January. However, I forgot it was her special birthday and so had to make this after the event - actually, quite a long time after the event. Still, she seemed pleased with it. It is made using garnet rounds, garnet nuggets, black onyx and silver.

Chelsea Week - in my garden
I can't compete with Chelsea, but I think my garden is managing to put on a bit of a show!

Chelsea Flower Show 2012 - my favourites
I was jealous of the lovely hazel supports he used for his shrub roses.
The most evocative garden was 'Welcome to Yorkshire' which featured landscape elements, and a stone mullioned window so typical of old Yorkshire houses. Wild flowers, stone walls and moorland - you could almost believe the Bronte sisters would appear and walk across the bridge.
So, which gardens did you like?
All the photos are from the RHS Chelsea website.

Gainsborough Old Hall interiors (part 2)
It was a fascinating visit and I heartily recommend a trip there. The cafe was lovely too - proper ceramic teapots and milk jugs (£2.00 for a pot for two), which is always a good thing in my book.

Gainsborough Old Hall interiors (part 1)
This is the 'ghost corridor', where the 'Grey Lady' is supposed to appear. She walks down the corridor and turns right, through what was once a solid wall. However, during restoration, the wall was taken down to reveal a blocked in door, precisely where she turned...
