Hee hee - never thought I'd provoke such emotion with yesterday's little harmless link to YouTube. If it's any help I have today been humming not only yesterday's link but the other six on my list for the rest of the week!
Just wait until you hear today's great UK hit from the days of my childhood!!
I was working on the Rosy dolls over the weekend and by this morning had got to this stage:
I cannot believe how long it took me to make their little clothes - it used up all of today's child free time.
As they are only little (11 inch high) dolls I don't think I'll be able to charge a great deal for them. You know how it is - you know just how much time and work has gone into them but the people buying them may not be able to appreciate that.
So tomorrow I really must get cracking on some little cheaper pieces for Friday's 'Ladies' Night' at the Monster's school. As long as they don't put me next to the Ann Summers stall with their display of chocolate willies I'll be fine!!!! Note to self - make sure you eat your dinner before going out to save possible embarrassment.
I popped out to the fabric shop for a new bulb for my sewing machine today and while I was there I saw the perfect fabric for the Minx and Monster for their Children in Need outfits for school on Friday. Both schools have requested they wear something spotty. As they have no spotty clothes (unless you count ketchup and gravy stains as spotty that is!) I was stuck for what to do.
As you know by now I rarely buy new fabric - most of my stash is charity shop, gifted and scrapstore. So it was with a heavy heart that I parted with £6.30 for 1.5 metres of fabric for a school thing!!
Having said that I am kind of pleased with how they turned out. Minx's skirt hem has been ripped out and redone since I took the photo. Even though it's just for the one day I couldn't bring myself to send her in with the hem dipping by over an inch at the front! Monster's barmy trousers are going to become PJ bottoms after Friday.
So now what you've all been waiting for.....
As French Knots pre-empted my initial plan to link to this song today I will save you that torture and instead may I proudly present these great Somerset popstars.
