Yesterday I put to good use some of the lemons that we have so many of from the garden. I made a lemon tart for the lads...I'm not that keen on it myself, so they will get to eat it all! It is so simple to make and yesterday I made it even easier as instead of using a pastry base, I actually used crushed Digestive biscuits mixed with butter. They tell me the base was "LOVELY!". The actual lemon filling is just condensed milk mixed with freshly squeezed lemon juice and then poured into the base and left to set in the fridge. No need for weighing or measuring....MY kind of cooking!
I've spent quite a bit of time over the last couple of days working on my Blythe Heather Sky. I think I wrote that I'd had a problem with her hair after giving it a conditioning treatment, so I wanted to rectify that (if possible) as soon as we got home. I think the problem was that down on the coast our water is really really soft and the conditioner I used just wouldn't come out of her hair. Plus her fringe went all weird on me. So when we got home here, I gave her a whole new hair treatment then following instructions from a lovely lady on Blythe Kingdom, I re-thatched her parting and then ironed her fringe in place. Now it looks absolutely perfect again!
Whilst I had Heather in pieces, I decided to give her a whole new make up, so I did that too and am really delighted with how she has turned out. I carved a little more on her mouth too. She is still the same Heather but with a more colourful fresh look! Here she is in all her glory:
I also gave her sleep eyes!
I also got a Licca body for my Nicky Lad. I think this thin gangly body really suits this face sculpt. Here is a photo that I took of her this morning. Funny little thing, isn't she!
I think these two girls will come to Blythe Con with me!
