Fuschia and her sister


Meet Fuschia.  Okay, not a very original name . . . I was tired that day! 


And her sister, April-May.  April-May was made for a swap on Stitchin' Fingers and her name comes from the theme for the swap. 


It all started with these lids.  You see, Mom has developed the habit of having one of these delicacies as a bedtime snack.  I guess when you are 88 you no longer need to worry about fat and cholesterol!  But that's beside the point!  The point is that she started saving these lids for me because she knew I could think of something to do with them!  Er, OK Mom.


So, many months later - after some head banging and experimenting - I actually did make something with them!  Since I already had several polymer and paper clay heads in the stash, I just selected a couple of them and went from there.  The lids are easily punched with an awl and it's mostly play after that.

What else can we do with these lids?

The Hagen-Daz sisters are gorgeous! Your mother sure knows her daughter. Reminds me of those plastic Maxwell House coffee can lids I've been saving. I just know they will have a use some day.

This might make an intersting challenge in the doll group.

They are terrific and this is a great idea, unfortunately no one eats ice cream in my household, but I'm sure I can find an alternative!
