This week's show-and-tell!




Yes, Thursday is my show-and-tell day... something I've made this week that I feel very happy with.

First up, is the card I did for Harry and Barbara's 60th wedding anniversary. Because my mum and dad have recently celebrated theirs, I know just how special this is occasion is. Even more so for their family, as Harry has spent a large part of the last 4 months in hospital and has been home for a couple of weeks. Harry, Barbara and I share a love of the operas of Richard Wagner. The performance we went to of 'Tristan and Isolde' at the Sydney Opera House in 1990 was one of the greatest afternoons/nights of my life! (Wagner's operas are very long)

These are 2 cards and matching jewelled bookmarks I made at class yesterday. The Indian Ocean blue card is for my friend Louise's 50th birthday. They are the colours I seem to gravitate to all the time!

I think you are onto a really enjoyable activity here, Jude. I am considering taking up beading. There is a "lolly shop" of beads within walking distance and I rarely find any necklaces in shops that I like - and they are way long anyway.
