Houseboat heaven




We have just returned from a week on the beautiful Hawkesbury River in New South Wales. What peace - no phones, no television, no newspapers, no internet access - just pure relaxtion.  We saw a wondeful pair of sea eagles but, as we had left the camera at home, I couldn't take photos of them- the phone camera was just not up to it. Tiny swallows flew around the houseboat all day and there were many different breeds of duck on the river.

Back to creating

Good news - I'll be back at the Rocks Designer Market in August - I'll post the date later. Life has again settled down and I'm able to get back to working with glass.

Life is getting back to normal

Well, after a lot of turmoil and disruption over the last 12 months my life is slowly settling down and returning to normal. I actually made four beads on Tuesday and another four yesterday. Yippee!!!

I have also had time to experiment with some tutorials that I purchased from other bead makers. Here are few beads I made based on Jennifer Geldard's Window Bead tutorial. Jennifer is a wonderfully creative US glass artist and I have several of her beautiful beads.

Fabulous 3-D Embroideries

Today I want to show some of my mother's wonderful 3-D embroideries/ wall hangings. I 'm so proud of her work and feel that it's time more people know about it.

So Beautiful



I'm the luckiest person in the world!! Just look at this beautiful bead that arrived in the mail from Manuela Wutschke. Manuela is my favourite bead maker of all time and one of the nicest people I know. Her bird beads are my favourites of all her beads.
