Did the earth move for you?

Cor blimey! I was in a well and truly deep sleep last night when crash, bang, wallop and rumble went on all around me, with everything shaking. I was scared stiff! Honestly I thought my heart would pop out of my chest! I know now that it was an earthquake.... yes an earthquake here in Sunny Scunthorpe! I even ran to my parents room to ask if they heard or felt anything but it seems they slept through it! Typical! Apparently we were only up the road from the epicentre in Gainsborough! It measured 5.8 on the Richter scale! Scary stuff if you ask me!

Now here's a picture of my PMC heart earring creations, not bad I don't think, and they took blumming ages let me tell you. Just the waiting for the clay to dry seems to take forever. For those of you who are unsure of what PMC is, its a form of clay which once moulded and fired with a blow torch turns to pure silver. Clever eh?

Wah! I wondered if you experienced the earthquake. Bet it was frightening, bizarre and exciting all at the same time!

Love the earrings! You've done a fab job with the PMC, Janine!

Just frightening, I'm not kidding... I actually cried! I think it was shock more than anything. Ha! I feel silly now! But I was asleep on my own :(

If the earth moved in Dorset I slept through it..... ;)

Love the hearts, great job done....I've got as far a buying a sample kit of PMC...........that was a year ago, I keep looking at it to see if it has a sell by date...

AW! Poor you, Janine! Actually I think I'd have cried too. Earthquakes aren't exactly everyday run-of-the-mill things here, are they?

Ah Mandie! That's so sweet! I'll jog across and look now :) Thank you! Yes I got a PMC kit for christmas but I was bought little extras to go with it too, and I think I may be a bit addicted now!

Laura, Exactly! I know we had a smaller one around here a couple of years back but this one was much worse! Ah well just think, some people have them all the time!!!
