My other news is that yesterday I gave my first ever scratchboard workshop !!!!!! I was extremely nervous at the beginning of the morning but as time went on, I began to relax. The workshop was a result of my winning 'Champion of the Show' with my Snow Leopard (Animal Magnetism) http://httpmyblogblogspotcom-judy.blogspot.com/2010/11/animal-magnetism.html at Laidley last November.
The Laidley area was one of the many badly affected by the recent Queensland floods and on the drive to this town there were workmen working on the roads where there had been landslides and parts of the roads washed away. To see the level of where the water had risen was absolutely incredible.
Now getting back to the workshop....I was told by the lady who had organised it all with me that she had never had one before where people had been so quiet, there was absolutely no talking at all, so I guess everyone was concentrating and I had some of the ladies come to me afterwards and say that they hoped I would go back at a later date as they had loved learning about scratchboard.
