I'm going to miss Cecilia

It's hard to believe anything worthwhile can actually come out of this room.

But just before Christmas, I did manage to turn one terrific Able and Game Tea towel(pic from Able and Game on etsy)
into a cushion for Miss 19.

and in the spirit of Christmas and the fact that she is leaving home on the weekend-I did not add "except when you are being a selfish cow!" to the back as I had originally planned.

But you have to know I thunk it !!!

got a sec?

From me and mine to you and yours.

I hope whatever and however you celebrate in the next few days goes off like a frog in a sock.

(providing the said frog actually wants to be in a sock of course, and that the sock is cleaned to regular hygiene standards and that the appropriate forms have been filed with the relevant Frog-Sock-Going-Off authorities)

Personalised Christmas decorations in ten minutes or less.....

Just find a blank cassette image or take a photo of a cassette and add some text to it.

Print it out on Ink jet Printable Fabric. Sew it onto felt and add a ribbon for hanging.

How about Uncle Trevor Sings the Blues......
Or Aunty Edna's Greatest Beer Hall Tunes.....
Xmas Chaos by the Dysfunctional Family Singers.....

Consider yourself warned -wallowing ahead.

There are just so many things one could embroider upon ones underpants.....
One could get quite carried away with ribald lady parts type jokes.......

One could even embroider some ribald lady-parts type jokes upon underpants to gift to appreciatively ribald friends, but one would not always blog those ones would one?

Leaning to the left

I find myself quite busy with an unscheduled day-job induced breakdown at the moment so please pull up a chair and talk amongst yourselves. Feel free to craft and look at the pretty pictures.
Designed by the wonderful Ms Zombie,
Bought from the Drapers of Mt Macedon.
Sewn whilst at Sewjourn with a raucous riotous bunch of wonderful women

If you notice excessive weirdness or drooling, I just ask that you make sure I am wearing good undies before you call the men in white coats.
I am happy enough to go stark raving bonkers but I refuse to do it in loosely strung, thin of crotch , bad day underwear.
I am a woman of principle.
