Looking at my project page I realized I have not posted anything since 2017! My LJ buddy “justoneofme” has been encouraging me to post some more so here goes1
I had some Irish dancing medals of my Dad’s and wanted to display them with the justice they deserved. I created our family coat of arms in marquetry and displayed the medals around it. Some of these medals date back to 1937. I think my Dad would have liked what I did. I am going to get the display professionally framed.

Hi Anna … I’m glad to see this beautiful work posted, after watching it come together via iMessage photos! It definitely is something your dad would have been very proud to see, all put together with his competition medals … and proud too of his very talented daughter!! Thanks for sharing this with us :)

Very nicely done Anna. Elaine is a great mentor and collaborator.
Great job on this piece and I’m sure your dad would be proud.
