...washing and ironing?...
Nope! There's no contest, is there?.
So what did I get up to this weekend? Well my 'ickle sis and her boys came up to visit. She hadn't met her new nephew yet so she was itching for a 'munch'. And also, we hadn't seen each other since before my birthday. Which meant....
And what's more she did like we do for Christmas. We set a tariff of say £15 and have to buy as much as we can find for each other for that amount of money. BUT - chairty shops, pound shops and car boot sales are all fair game. We can make stuff as well. Anything that we think the other will like.
It's great. I know for myself that I put so much thought into it. I collect bits all through the year whenever I see them.
Anyhoo. This is what I got.
Yes. Poking out of the top you can just see my bag of Maoam Stripes. I love these chewy sweets, although not good for the waistline..
Proportionally the hips and boobs on this little fairy are about right, just wish my legs were that skinny!
Think I've said before that I love Charlie and Lola. So this is a pair of Jibbitz (charms) for my Crocs.
She also gave me this -
Thanks so much Nack xxx Just got to start collecting again for Christmas now ;o)
On Saturday night I had another belated birthday treat. Here's a clue -
Can't get it?...
OK. Here it is a bit bigger:
These two people were very much involved:
Yay!! 'ethel and edna' went to see Mary Poppins. It was FANTASTIC!! I only wish I'd taken kiddie to see it 'cause she'd have loved it. The umbrella was a guilt prezzie for her instead. If the show is coming to your part of the world do go and see it.
And finally, I finished this just before the weekend but thought you'd like to see the finished woman! I've taken a stack of photos of her and popped them over on Flickr. Click on the button in the sidebar if you want a lookie.
My problem now is where to sell her? I had thought about etsy as they go for Halloween in America in such a big way, but I don't know what to charge for her. So then I thought eBay with a lowish starting price to see what she reaches.
What does anybody else out there think? Your advice would be most appreciated (or an offer if you want her :o) hee hee)
Hmm... washing and ironing...? Tsk! Suppose I'd better get back to it.
