Bobbin Beads

Thanks to the lovely Nat (Beadmonki) I have some bobbins to play with. I have a long way to go to catch up with Nat's brilliance but here are the first few.

Just for a laugh

I recently attended a marvellous marble workshop with one of Australia's wellknown glass artists - Bernard (Bernie) Stonor. The class was a tremendous learning experience and we had lots of fun as well. Just look at these pics of Brenda Coleman and me doing the Time Warp.

It's just a jump to the left...

and then a step to the right...

Sad Sunday

I'm sitting at home feeling very sad. Tonight it will be 4 weeks since my dearly loved mother passed away. I'm a bit teary and missing her very much as we always spent Sunday afternoons together when I didn't have a market to attend.

As well as remembering mum I'm also spending time trying to think of happier times and looking through photos. So, here are two I would like to share with you.
First one of mum's incredible embroideries - Flemish Flowers.

Second, a very happy day spent with Bob in Kyoto. Just as we were walking down these steps very light snow started falling.
