THIS IS WHAT YOU WANT,
COME AND SING THE CHEEKY SONG,
OUR CHEEKY SONG, WOO
( Sung by the Cheeky Girls. I had to Google the lyrics. My eyes are burned, I tell you, they may never recover. And why did I find these deeply inspiring lyrics??)
I present to you, The Alternative Cheeky Girls...
ATCs courtesy of Doone!! They were reunited during an evening of Sangria and dancing on the tables Chez Dunnit!! What better way could our friendship be immortalised? Thank you, Donna, we both love 'em very much!
A couple more ATCs arrived this week..
'Music' by Sandra De and 'A Patriotic Thank You' from BJ
They're both absolutely gorgeous, ladies, thank you so very much!
Ok, the desk... (you knew I'd get there eventually...)
This colourful sheepy fabric was passed to me by a friend from band who has pet sheep of her own! She asked me to make a cover for a V Pillow..
This was the old cover that I used as a template. Instead of doing poppers though, I made an envelope type opening at the back (I hate doing poppers..... mutter, mutter) It seemed to work ok and Bev was pleased with it, which is the main thing. This is the woman who once held a 'Guess the Weight of my Ram' competition at her local fete. Polite comments only, please!!
The stamp fabric shopping bag is still in bits, but I did make a Kindle cover with a stripey ticking inside...
I used a double layer of quilting batting as the wadding and it gave a nice bit of protection without being too bulky. I think I'm going to upsize this design for an iPad cover for a friend who's recently got one. Should work ok.....
UK ladies of a certain age may well remember a wonderful cartoon series called Willo' The Wisp, voiced by the wonderful Kenneth (Ooooh, Matron!) Williams. Well, anyway, I was looking for a new Facebook profile pic and who should spring to mind?? Mavis Cruet the fairy, that's who!

You see, I may want to look like Julia Roberts, but deep down, I know I'll always be a Mavis *grin* Lolololol!! And I can live with that!
See you next Wednesday!!
