As I sat sewing at the feet of the great and the good...

I got to thinking...
How is it in life some folk...
have it and some don't?

I wake most mornings with a head full of 
magical works of art...
only to find on getting settled in the studio...
my riffling and jiggery-pokering of bits of material...
make...
not to put too finer point on it...
 a mess.

As regular readers of my blog will know,
I commissioned the wondrous 
to make a picture of my
Di card.
Which because she had made it,
 I would feel happy to put on the wall.

My drawers are full of 
Royal memorabilia
which I am too modest,
to display.
'NEVER!' 
I hear you cry!

Viv has made a lovely Viv-type
extravaganza, which she left me...
Yes that's right...
ME to finish off.





This is it...

I don't know whether to
laugh or cry?

Hope I've done Viv proud.
