Yesterday was ... truly.
My Mum came to visit, my lovely friend Kelly dropped in for art chat and the sun shone gaily all day. My marking languished on the table, I didn't finish the washing and yet somehow a finished charm bracelet appeared on my work desk. A mystery indeed. Except that my beloved daylight saving has ended, and I changed my clocks early, to give myself an extra hour before bed - it was just the time I needed to finish this silver bracelet. It will be put away carefully for the birthday of a friend, in a few months time.
And now a question. I rang my friend Ann, and asked that she and her visiting sister and 16 year old daughter all measure their wrists at the widest point. What do you know, they were all 19cm. The question - is this a family thing? A coincidence? Or is your wrist 19cm circumference?
Thank you for all the soldering tips and encouragement. I have a set of helping hands on order and I am going to chase up a copy of Sally Jean Alexanders book.
