New Camera

Today i bought myself a Kodak EasyShare digital camera. 10mp 3x optical zoom from ALDI
Well, to be honest i asked Mark (my middle son) to get it for me and i will be pay him back. It should be mine in a couple of months. My picture quality should improve enormously, it is an easy camera to use.

Angel and Devil Chess set

This is another chess set i made and it is on two levels. This too was a gift for a friend for Christmas a couple of years ago.

Wedding Present

This is the chess set i made for my sister as a wedding present. All the peices have different colours on them according to their status. The fold up box is made of hardboard. (to me that was the hardest part, I am not a carpenter)! It has a piano hinge in the middle, the board itself was the first time i have done quilting and it is padded and sewn onto the case by hand. The main fabric used is corderoy with leather edges sewn on by hand. The brass fittings and hinges are from my second favourite store ,Bunnings
This is where i buy my hardware and wire, glues, wood paints and varnish.
