A lovely bunch of coconuts.....!
Monday again, cold it is too, my feet are seriously below the temparature of what I would call reasonable for feet!
Enough of that, if I get on, I might forget about my feet!
I have been fairly busy last week, I have turned my creative juices all tropical making coconuts whole ones for the coconut shy, and halves for, ...well I don't know actually, I bought one, to copy & now I don't know what to do with it. We use coconut for plenty of recipes, but we tend to buy the milk in a tin & the white part in a packet. I suppose it's partly because it's a pain to open & partly because when you do, you lose half the milk & it's hard to separate the "flesh" from the shell.
suggestions would be welcome!
I'm pleased with them though, they did take me ages, good job I don't suffer from lack of patience!
The coconuts will be part of my exhibition at the end of the year, it is called "Itsy Britsy" & is a celebration of Great British traditions, a summer fete is one of my favourites & I intend to have a 12th scale fete complete with coconut shy.
I will write more about my exhibition at a later date......now brrrrr more socks!
Todays Happy thought....One kind word can warm three winter months.
