Great fun at Loren's class

This is a photo of Loren finishing off my paperweight.

Loren's class was amazing. I'm still recovering. We didn't finish until 4.30am on the last day!
We learnt an amazing number of techniques. Loren is very generous and demonstrated lots of techniques that were not included in the class curriculum. Hopefully, I will have absorbed some of this knowledge.
Now it's a last minute rush of preparation for the Bead & Gem Show stating on 25th September. I really am a last minute person!!! I'm looking forward to meeting old friends and making new ones at the show. See you there.

Exciting times

Stunning examples of Loren's work
I will be leaving for Melbourne tomorrow for a 5-day class with Loren Stump. I'm so excited and nervous at the same time. Loren is a legend in the glass art world. Class times are from 10am - 6pm, however, the class can go on until 10 or 11pm!!! I hope I can keep up.

Market Days

The laughing kookaburras wake me early each morning lately. Their joyful song and loud cackling is a delightful start to the day.
It's Bob's birthday today and he is far away on the other side of the country in Perth, Western Australia. Birthday celebrations will have to wait until the weekend. Chloe and I miss him when his work takes him away from home.
Speaking of Chloe, she is sitting on eggs at the moment. What a shame that she doesn't have a mate and no little chicks will emerge after all her hard work.
Well, it's market weekend again. I will be at Mosman Art & Craft Market on Saturday the 5th and St Ives Heritage Craft Market on Sunday 6th September. A trip to the market would be a nice outing for Fathers' Day - bring dad along for a fun-filled day on Sunday.
