Mr. Chucky No More!
Before my left breast decided to do it's best impersonation of that puffer fish from Finding Nemo I was in the crafting zone. Sewing, knitting, crocheting, doll making...you name it...I was doing it. Mmm...tis highly likely this is the very reason for my bosom's Dr.Jekyll and Mr. Hyde style metamorphosis. Or perhaps the bucket loads of concrete I heaved into a giant skip last weekend. I really need a smack!
But anyhoo...mammary woes aside. Onto more crafty tidings with some much needed burp cloths for the little man. In saying that, they were much needed as he regularly projected milky slush á la The Exorcist but wee little detective that I am discovered the culprit. Chocolate people!!! Could there be a more crushing blow. Went off the gorgeous stuff and next day...Mr. Chucky no more. Yay...and boo hoo all rolled into one.
Using up some of my mountainous stash of fabric and trying ever so hard to live up to my New Year's resolution to not buy anymore fabric, I put together some gorgeous Heather Ross Far Far Away double gauze backed with some pale blue vintage chenille. I just whacked right sides together, sewed them up on Jan leaving a turning hole then turned them right side out and topstiched all around. Trés simple.
And the verdict from Monsieur Remoulade. "Moi..Mr.Chucky? I think not!"
"Ah but Mr. Smiley...now that's a title I'll more than happily wear!"
Joining in over here and finding all the brilliant crafty inspiration just the elixir I need. Ta!
