Judy came to play
I had a fabulous time with Judy when she came to Melbourne with Michael who was teaching classes here. Judy came to play in my studio on Saturday and then we went to Camberwell market on Sunday. Judy was like a kid in a toy shop, she'd never seen a market quite like it. They sell just about everything, including lots of old stuff reasonably cheap, we tend to take it for granted assuming they have similar in other states, but apparently not. I bought some nice old jewellery that I can take apart and re-use. It was quite a warm day so by the end we were wilting, but we still managed to find the strength to visit an old book store, that has some magnificent old books, papers, journals and very old document, needless to say, we didn't come away empty handed.
On the Saturday night we went out to dinner with Judy and Michael and some of the students from Michael's class, including the very entertaining Jen Crossley . All I can say is Jen kept us very entertained (and we have it on video Jen) with some colourful language when Judy gave her a lovely surprise, which I'll leave Jen to show on her blog.
Judy made me this beautiful journal, I can't wait to work in it, it's divine. All the colour in my studio was quite a shock to her, she was working on a project and had to compromise as I don't have very many dark products, she did very well with what I had.
Finally this is another pair of earrings that are for sale on my Etsy store
