Edna Boland Sydney, NSW Australia Index Back

I have been a crafts-person all my life starting with doll dressmaking at about 3-4 years of age.

"Hidden Treasure"
Along with  the beautiful lengths of yarn I received were also embellishments, one lot resembled rough cut diamonds so I decided to make a piece and hide the "diamonds" in a garden. I made a flap in the corner and when it is lifted...voila... the hidden treasure is revealed!

"Bushfires in Australia"
From the remaining yarn I chose colours to resemble the bushfires which occur every summer in Australia, the flames leaping high into the canopies of tall gum trees in split seconds.
