Bits and Bobs

A few pincushions made with some appropriate and very gorgeous linen. These will go on the WI stall at our village fete on 3rd September. If you are interested in coming along, let me know and I'll email you the details. FYI I am securing some amazing "vintage" items that I am pricing - "to sell". I already have lots of cut glass, vintage pearls (in their boxes) and the promise of 2 x 70 year old full tea services! You are not going to want to miss it! I thought I would show you my attempt at being a cartoonist. We had a visit from a talented cartoonist at our WI meeting last night and he didn't just talk at us, he gave us all a sketch pad and made us join in.
As you can see - I shan't be giving up the day job!

Nice cartoon - I can imagine you being great at caricatures - novelty cards would be good.

It is a great cartoon, the pin cushions are sweet too. I'll come to the fair if you pay my fare only about $1400 AU.
