In preparation for the impending craft fair, I have made the entirely sensible decision not to make any stock, but instead procrastinate and finish projects that have been in the pipeline for some time. The first of these was a pop art syle speech bubble cushion promised to my sister Jo, back in January. Although it took up practically my entire Sunday, and made me never want to applique again (why, oh why, did I decide to do it all painstakingly by hand?!), I absolutely love it. Even Todd managed to muster a smile and a vague compliment (see photo) – praise indeed! The best thing about it, is the fact that I can pretend the kittens are talking to me… although if Chomsky could actually speak, I’m sure it’d be something more along the lines of “FEED ME!”. For the beady-eyed folk out there, the font I used (traced from a PC screen due to lack of printer) is the same as my ‘Sally’s Craft Corner’ logo – amazing! I’m very jealous Jo – I just hope Tim lets you keep it on display in the flat!
