I have a big market coming up in a month, so I'm becoming a craft machine, well oiled and productive like a North Korean military parade. I am on a card roll. It's pretty good fun making these 'library cards', finding the words to match the images is a bit of an art. My mum started the trend. She started making little gift tags with all the left over paper we had from the brooch making. She collects romance novel covers to turn into rad art like this wall quilt called 'desperate housewives'. So with all the scrap paper and book pages we started making cards ...
Below is the quilt it has saucy men and women of Mills and Boon origin and cook book images such as 'meat puffs' and 'sweet corned tongue'.
She entered the quilt into the Mossman country show and the judges didn't really get the joke ... it was awarded first place! ha ha ha. This segment on the ABC recently reminded me of her winning quilt.
Here are some of the potty mouth numbers I've done up in the last few days ... the words are from high quality literature such as The Rouseabout, Lure of Eagles and Untamed Lover. Oh so saucy.
'You're in deep shit, Kate Webster.'
'Shit happens. It's life.'
'Dickhead, Will muttered.'
