But, Mummy, it's YOU!

My three-year-old daughter and I share the kitchen most mornings. Rosie sits in her "clip-on chair" at the workbench while I get on with some dishes, or ironing, or whatever job needs doing at the time (I always draw the short straw!) While this is going on Rosie usually pursues some artistic quest, and one of her favourite activities is making 'stuff' out of Play doe. Anyway, the other day I was almost squealing with delight admiring her new creation, "ah, you clever girl! You clever girl!" I was singing. But then I made the fatal error of asking "So Rosie... who is it?", to which she gave a big sigh and replied, "But Mummy, it's YOU!"

All I can say is, it must have been a good night out on the town!!! he he he... especially to have had all that plastic work done! Easy on the collagen next time, Dr Potato Head! And maybe a trip to the dentist is in order...

Besides posing for gallery pieces, I have been stitching away to my heart's content. I have almost completed my project, and took this pic last week before I started piecing it all together.

The question is... da da daaaaa... Can you guess which Australian artisan designed this project? Answers on a postcard please to: I'm sure I must have something better to do,
PO Box I haven't? Postcode: Ah well, that's OK then.

I'm in a silly mood! It must be all that plastic surgery going to my head!

Until next time, happy creating!

Vikki :-)

I love using play dough and had heaps of fun with my kids when they were younger... except I hated when they mixed up the colours... we didn't always play nicely!!

I'm with Barb, I think it looks very much like a Bronwyn Hayes project. I look forward to seeing it completed Vikki.

Yes ladies you are all correct - it is a Bronwyn Hayes design. They are wonderfully distinctive aren't they?

Hey - I've just noticed that Mr Potato Head (standing next to "me" in the photo) is pinching my bottom! Ooh! That's just made me blush!!! LOL

Hey Vikki! Ah ... another person who get the 'sillies'!! YAY! Mine usually kick in due to lack of sleep or excess of caffiene!! :0) Bronwyn is my fave stitchery designer - I have a red and green quilt in my lounge room that I made featuring nine of her designs in redwork - I get lots of comments about it! Enjoy your stitching, can't wait to see what it grows up to be! Bear Hugs! KRIS
