Thank you to everyone who commented on my piece in the Belle amoire issue with Judy Wilkenfelds wonderful silver cast dolls. I cant thankyou enough for your encouragement in my work.

Now I travelled up to Sydney on the long weekend in June to the Lovely "Etching Wenches Retreat" Our hostess was Margaret Weiss on her beautiful Holiday farm.
We had a weekend of Classes The swallow book, Crystal Necklaces and etching necklace,plus demo's as well by the wonderul Kristy,Christina,Martina and Ruth,to keep our nights busy.
It was a wonderful weekend with Food, company,and play.

Looks like a fab weekend Jen, I have GOT to get to one of your etching classes sometime soon. I love your etching work. Umm, Sounds a bit rude really, LOL! Sorry to hear your back is acting up again. Tell me the tape was for support... not waxing related! LOL!

You were missed. So sorry to hear that your back has been giving you trouble again and that things have not been so wonderful for you, that is no good.
Looks like your weekend was great therapy though, love the photos and the treasures that were created.
