After a ladies lunch with my dear friend Fiona, I returned home to spend the afternoon with Liz, the friend with whom I will travel to Venice in October.
We both own dolls houses, so today we had a very happy few hours making "Fimo Food". Liz created some lovely confections – "flans" made in bottle tops, and I tried my hand at creating the foundation of a choux pastry/profiterole pyramid.
Don’t we look as if we are having fun? We were! (I wonder if the wine glasses accompanying us have anything to do with that?). We have now designated Friday afternoons as "girl time" when we will get together to play crafts, go antique shopping, generally pamper ourselves. Well, who else will do it for us? And girls just gotta have fun! (Though not too much – the chockkie bikkies and glasses of wine do no favours for the figure – something of which, Fiona – with a rather marvellous weight loss of – ahem – a LOT – is a great reminder. Girls might have fun – but a svelte figure (plus gorgeous, long blond hair) look rather like fun as well.)
Here is my effort – still awaiting acrylic "chocolate" and applied fabric roses. I made the serving tray our of a foil catfood tray.
Unable to resist it, here is today's cat picture - of Lissie, preparing herself for travel - i.e. rolling herself in bubble wrap plastic! She normally sleeps on top of it (it is normally used to separate cat from scanner) - but today, she decided a little variety was in order. ( I promise that I do not edit these photographs - she really does get herself into these contortions!).
