Beef stew !!

Sorry it`s been a long time since my last post but i`ve been really busy with  the house trying to get things in order  , once you make a dent in something you notice other things that need looking at and before you know it your up to your eyeballs ,hopefully thats it for a  while !!! back to important things like miniatures thought i`d share some of my savoury mini`s today this hot pot is one of my favourites my nan used to make this all the time  , wish i`d took more notice when she was cooking i`m a rubbish cook !! she`d make everything look so easy, but so tasty  !!! its a shame the washing up wasn`t so easy they didn`t have dish washers in thoses days that`s what grandchildren were for  ( well thats what she kept telling me anyway !!)

Chocolate truffles anyone ??

Here are some miniatures i have made this week, i have included a photo of my messy work area !! the shame of it , good job it`s in the loft and nobody else see`s  it except like minded miniaturist who appreciate the organised chaos that inspires us , well that`s what i keep telling myself , i`m in chocolate mode for now and this is my first attempt at a chocolate box filled with truffles, i`m trying out different papers for the box so will probably have dozens by the time i`m completely happy with it, when there done they will be coming to Newark for my next show , enjoy ! remember no calories !!
