Mermaids, Women and William

What a great day! Today was the first of my 2009 workshops - the beaded mermaid bag or necklace. It was held at Judith Killen's Busy Hen Shed Studio in Dural with a delightful group of very skilled and creative women . They all achieved quite a lot in the day, and were well on the way to creating beautiful mermaids - the process includes stamping onto polymer clay, designing the mermaid and bead embroidering the figure. Here are some photos- all pictured being very conscientious and on task. Thanks and well done Judith, Megan, Johanna, Kellee, Janine, Carole and Toni.

I was very lucky to celebrate International Women's Day with my sister in Townsville last week, with a group of Queensland women educators . The photo below shows us at the function where the special guest speaker was a student from our alma mater, St. Margaret Mary's College.
While I was there, the Unifem function was being held here in Newcastle. My friend and fellow Rotarian, Lyn Thorpe was the guest speaker, and ended up with the handbag I made and donated as one of the prizes... Hope you like the felted bag, Lyn. I called this creation, Earth Bag.

And of course, I remembered...Happy Birthday to a very special little boy, our youngest grandson, William - 1 today !
