This week I have been very busy looking after my two youngest boys, who both caught a nasty bug that caused a high fever and a lot of vomiting. Poor little guys. In the evenings I was glad to find a little time to experiment with the lutradur I bought quite a while ago. I made this postcard (41/2 " square), do you like it? I may make a small quilt using this stuff.
On Tuesday I finally had the opportunity to visit the Paddington Antique Centre here in Brisbane. It is a collection of antique shops in a wonderful old building (the Plaza Theatre, built in 1930). I bought this lovely box and some old books, among them a geography school book printed in 1938. I want to try some mixed media pieces and thought I might use these books.
