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.

Hope the boys are feeling better.
I love that Antique centre-you can spend so long in there just physicking around.

De arme jongens... en jij, die voor ze moest zorgen. Wat is dat voor spul waar je die kaart mee hebt gemaakt?
