Papermaking and fun potraits

On Tuesday the Fab Four Females group met up at Ricky's for a making session, Gina was unable to make it so we became the Fab Three Minus One. Susan and I arrived at 10.30 am, it was a beautiful sunny day as we drove up her tree lined driveway. After tea and a quick tour of her house we settled down to our papermaking activity with flowers picked from her garden as inclusions. We laid the papers out to dry in the sun and left them to dry while we cleared up and prepared for part two.
Cary, Ricky's husband was also at home working, he had really wanted to become a Fab Four member for the day but he was not allowed instead he was given the task of making us lunch.
He made a delicious fruit drink, leafy green salad (all from their garden) and cheesy rice. The dessert compliments of Susan was a tasty fruit salad with mangoes and crunchy biscuits which went down really well too.
The cool breeze, the sounds of birds tweeting, with an occasional loud screech from a peacock ( which to me sounded like children playing) helped to created the perfect garden of Eden atmosphere. We had a really wonderful day and towards the end Cary allowed us a turn to 'play' with his plasma cutter. He was using this to create a larger that life size commissioned sculpture of Amazon women, we found this most amazing an appreciated how difficult his task was. As usual I forgot my camera so have no photos of this eventful day but Ricky did capture some of so it has been recorded. Thanks Girls and Cary for being such great friends! Gina we missed you!
