More food

Yesterday we were at The Museum of African Art (there was bazaar in the backyard) ,and guess what,we tried few of their national dishes.
This in the picture is Egyptian meal,don't know the name,but it was OK.
We tried everything,and it was interesting experience for me.
I even asked for the recipes but nobody couldn't help me with it.
So first sushi the other day than this African everything yesterday....great,I only need to visit these places and the impression will be compete.

Here we are eating under the tree.


Sooo,I made a sushi other day,and we eat it.
I tried sushi last summer at a restaurant,and it tasted interesting,so I thought that I could of try to make it my self.I only needed to find ingredients for it.
Few days ago ,Marko and I visited new supermarket and I was so happy when I saw that they have Nori algae and fresh salmon.
So I bought it,did a little research on the Internet,and here are the results.

I wanted to make tempura too but my sister Maja offered to help me so I only gave her instructions and she made tempura,so we had a dinner together.

It was delicious.

My first reborn doll

Last time when I was at the flea market,I bought naked vinyl baby boy doll.I'm impressed with all pictures and websites about reborning.This is one of activities that don't exist in here,so I had to try it.
It was a little complicated for me because of supplies (you need special paint for this,glass eyes and other things),but I did it my way (as I usualy did).I used acrylic paint,and left original eyes inside.For rooting hair I used black wool row that someone send me long time ago.
Rooting is done with felting needles like felting-stabing wool in the head(poor baby).

All baby's body is painted.First layer was draving the veins,than texturing the skin,and finaly adding ten color and blushing.I find few tutorials on Youtube, that were realy useful for me.

PS; I broked 3 of my precious felting needles while rooting the hair,but there was no way back when I started doing this.
My boy has no lashes,I had no baby lashes to add to him and thought that regular fake eye lashes were to big for him.

His name is Vuk (wolf),because if I had son his name would be Vuk but I have two girls so...

Another bag

Few months ago when I joined a bag making group on yahoo,I met a lady-Phyllis Jackson- who was so kind to send me ful box of interesting bag patterns,Thank you Phyllis.
By now I managed to make only this one bag.
It's silk bag from the shirt that I bought on the flea market long ago.
