Well. Here it is. The last of my ABSA swaps. This is Bob the Bead. the background is made from lollysticks and stained with furniture touch-up varnish. Bob is a sewing machine bobbin, decorated with wire and beads and safety pins. I had a lot of fun making him. Here's to many more ABSAs (well maybe lol).

This is a cross stitch that I made for a friend who gives the best massages on the planet! After having Ross I had a really sore back (the one and a half hour labour probably had something to do with it lol). I paid Carol a visit and she fixed me right up with a wonderful relaxing massage.
She also does various other therapies and you can go firewalking, amongst other things, at her house (not done that yet!). Carol also now makes her own soaps and bath goodies called the National E.L.F. Service, and they are wonderful. Visit her website at http://www.elementalifeforce.co.uk/1.html where you can also see pics of her recent visit to the Amazon with her husband, who is a good friend of my Billy's.

These are pictures of my two beautiful boys. Robert is 11 and proud big brother to Ross who is just 7 months. Robert loves PCs, gaming, eating, playing guitar and generally driving me nuts! Ross is an attention seeking cutie, who has a wee bit of a temper already! Aren't kids wonderful! I love them to bits.

This is my first ABSA (Alternate Background/Something Altered) ATC for a Do Crafts themed swap. It uses a sponge cleaning pad painted with H2Os for the backing and a bent key covered in red foil and decorated with wire and beads. Was a bit of a challenge and have got another one still to do... watch this space!
