I finished the burnt lady. If you remember I had over baked her and she was looking rather burnt earlier. You wouldn't know her now after she has been painted and dressed. Her name is Azure. I decided to antique her because I realised after baking that I had actually forgotton to smooth her face so there were lots of bumps and crevices on her face which should not have been. Well that is what happens when one is trying to multi task lol! Although I am pleased with the results I actually don't like her face very much. I think her expression is horrible. She looks as though she is going to give one of her set downs to someone lol!

Yesterday I decided to do something different. I decided to bake a chocolate cake. After mixing the ingredients when I came to mix the chocolate, I realised I didn't have enough for my cake. It would have helped to have checked before I started on this venture. Anyway I used what I had in the end and this is the colour it came out as. It tasted fine but it neither tasted of chocolate or a plain cake so I have named it 'neither here nor there cake' lol! And if you want to know the recipe for this just add one bar of chocolate to your plain cake mix made out of 5 eggs and you will get this wonderful tasting cake lol!!

I have still not found a good background for my blog. I didn't like the previous one as it seemed to be a bit too harsh to the eyes. I will settle for this one for the moment until I can find one that goes with my title I think. Or something that is pleasing. So bear with me if you find that I have changed the background again and again.

Whew at last she is done. She took me so long to make that I almost gave up on her but now she is done. She is called Nightingale. She is a lover of music and if you are very very quiet you can hear her sweet music. She works her magic on the flowers which she picks from the meadows and the gardens and plays her sweet music with them.
Choc of course insisted that I take a picture of her with him as he has been through thick and thin while making her.

Today I have been doing some felting. A little bit of wet felting and a little bit of dry felting and beading again. In the process I have been tipping my little containers of seed beads again and again and again on the floor and spent time on my hands and knees again lol! No matter how careful I am I seem to be doing this so often. Any way I finally finished the flowers. I am quite pleased with them as I have never tried this shape before. I had tried making them with polymer clay but was not pleased with the results so decided to try felting. Amazing what a little bit of fluff can be turned into.
