Not the edible sort, sadly.  But, these are possibly even more fun.




Two of us found these jelly lens in our stockings on Christmas morning.  Small and not particularly high quality, they more than made up for that in fun value.




One, the grey-blue one, is a soft focus lens.  It has a jelly-like sticky surface which adheres to the lens of an automatic camera or, more probably, the lens of a camera-phone.  Very plasticky, not exceptionally accurate or technically advanced but a bit of a lark.  Anton was happy to model in soft focus.




Here’s a soft focus Kaffe Fassett flower – I’ve been putting a quilt top together today.




The turquoise blue one is a kaleidoscope lens and is even more fun to use.  The front part twists to vary the scene viewed.




So, a shot of the Christmas table brings in all kinds of surprises (and surprise visitors)


Thank you Father Christmas, for finding this bit of fun and nonsense!
