I confess I have always hated sewing with a passion mainly because it requires a preciseness in measurement and cutting I haven't the patience for. So when I saw SEWING was to be our theme at TAKE A WORD I wondered what I would be inspired to create.
And then I thought about pin cushions. In my mind's eye I saw a voodoo doll with pins of all kinds sticking from its little body and knew you would be shocked. What about an old doll then with a fabric body, could I stick pins into that? Even though I had a twinkle in my eye at the thought, I knew you would disapprove. Mmmmmmm. Pale and exhausted and devoid of inspiration suddenly I had a vision .... of a finely toned torso ...... and then the rest was history. Who wouldn't want to own such a pin cushion surely it would inspire even me to sew!
Probably sinister. Definitely creepy. My Muse made me do it! Hee hee.
Once upon a time there was a witch who was as beautiful as she was wicked. She was so beautiful that everyone who looked upon her face was happy to do her bidding without question.
She was said to love children (and so she did but mainly for their tender flavour which she found irresistible). Mothers were encourage by the wicked witch to send their children to visit during the school holidays and they fell over themselves to obey her wishes.
There was just one little flaw to the witch's beauty and that was the children could see right through it. They were able to see the wart covered green skin, foul breath, slimy teeth and wicked heart.
The witch knew this and so she instructed the parents to leave their children at the front door where they would be entertained until she arrived. The children, however, knew the clown was employed for another reason which was to lure the children into the witch's den whilst she peered from the darkness ....... have you found her yet?
