Indian Summer

We’re having some lovely autumn weather at the moment. Which has enabled a couple of nice walks at Anglesey Abbey with the children. The second visit was prompted by my son managing to delete the contents of his camera’s memory card, complete with some lovely photos from our first weekend visit, when trying to copy them to the computer!

This morning I spent teaching binary complete with props – a set of weighing scales and ounce weights (plus extra pretend weights at 32, 64 and 128 ozs). This afternoon I went to Creating Space and made a pendant that incorporates a dichroic glass cabochon I made a few years ago.

Over the last few weeks I’ve been trying to get back into modelling with Fimo (polymer clay). The clay has changed from the Fimo I used years ago, so it’s taken some getting used to. This is made with Professional Fimo with mica and the glass cabochon, photographed before curing in the oven:

I’m looking forward to finishing this off and making it into a necklace.
