Tortoise Swap: Cathy’s Torty

cathy_and_torty

Had such a nice day making things out of the modelling clay, Fimo, with Cathy. Made colourful things – – – squiggly pendants, flowers and, er, tortoises.

Today was the Tortoise Swap…so I took a photo of Cathy with the tortoise I made her. No pics of me since my hair was still wet from being washed! But there’s a couple of photos of the torty my friend made me…..

    Ha ha, I just love that star jumping Torty. Sounds like you and Cathy had lots of fun. I saw what I thought was a REAL tortoise in local garden centre last week, it was SO REALISTIC!! but on closer inspection of course it was a replica – but brilliant all the same. I did think of getting it to accompany my pottery ones in the garden, but I think he was a different ‘species’ so decided to leave him where he was. He, and I’m sure it was a he!, was the size of say a flattened football, but half puffed up, if you get my drift!! Perhaps I’ll try and take a pic if he’s still there next time I go, camera permitting – its playing silly wotsits again at the moment. I’ve just been downloading some free toy patterns, so watch out Torty you may have some company soon. luv elaine.
