Thermal Blanket and Food and Craft Fair

 It's always a good day when Vogue comes to town.
But, frankly, this month's edition has rattled me.
A see-through mesh number (as above) around $1200 AUS.
Please, people.
Our Kylie on the front. Always good to see, though.
 And, four words: thermal blanket fashion trends.
 I'm flummoxed and I am Vogue enough to say so.
 Look below: here's a thermal blanket cape.
Don't wear it out in Queensland's summer.
You'll bake.
The two week term break's been lovely.
We've been relaxing.
Probably a bit too much of the latter, and now I've had to combine two posts into one
because Mr Fascinata came up the stairs today and queried, 'What's
going on, aren't you blogging anymore?'
There's a sign.
 Eating and Sleeping.
Panna Cotta.


 Set up a few Easter vignettes.
Eaten them.
 A Restaurant or two in our own backyard.

 Scallops + Lemon + Garlic

 Roast Pork.
 Morning Tea with T.

 Prepared this polka dotted tulle to fashion a few floras for the Guild's Mothers Day Fair today.
 Easter cake making with T2.

 It's a chocolate flavoured Simmnel cake.

 Here's T2's Easter bunnies.
Tiny and adorable.

 We had a very Happy Easter.
Thank you.
 And today, was the Embroiderers' Guild Mothers Day Craft Fair.

Stay busy.
And away from thermal coats if you can help it.

Repetto and Frou Frou

 This year I am trying to establish a theme for the Floras I make for the Mothers Day Craft Fair.
Dream: Repetto.
At the Embroiderers' Guild.
I am imagining I am creating frippery for a ballet and Repetto's made the slippers.
I've made the frou frou.
 Oh, I have also ordered in the buffet snacks.
 Here's Repetto in the Marais.
The light was the loveliest.
 Here's some one-of-a-kind hand-made Flora corsages.

 Repetto's only the left.


How's your Easter plans?
Must get the lilies and the eggs, very soon.
 I have a gluten free Easter cake workshop coming up with T from the chalkface.
I am excited.
Stay enthused.
