Little cock...

...NEY SPARROW

Made you look! Made you stare! Made you lose your underwear!

Well you should know me by now; show me a tone and I'll lower it ;0)

Anyroad latest addition to the Mimilove stable (nest?) of stuffed stuff, a wee Cockney Sparrow...or should that be sparra?

See the Bow & Arrow sat on his Bottle & Glass, 'aving a Butcher's Hook at the world going by..



'old the Dog & Bone...he's Pearly Queen you strolling up the Frog & Toad:
And I quote:

"Cor Blimey! I can't Adam & Eve my Mince Pies!
You're a Bobby Dazzler & no mistake!"


Bless his wee Cockney Jam Tart!

Mr. Sparrow sits on his machine stitched perch amongst a big old bunch of grassy stuff and leafery in bright clashy oranges, pinks and yellows with blues and greens and a smattering of tiddly green glass beads. The painty background has a mettalic acylic paint mixed in it for a bit of glittery goodness too. He's backed with black & white gingham, has a spotty pink & white loop and is stuffed with hollowfibre for your squidging pleasure



Bow and Arrow = Sparrow
Bottle & Glass = A....nswers on a postcard
Butcher's Hook = Look
Dog & Bone = Phone
Pearly Queen = Seen
Frog & Toad = Road
Adam & Eve = Believe
Mince Pies = Eyes
Bobby Dazzler = rather attractive (not y' classic rhyming slang)
Jam Tart = Heart
Sausage and Mash = Cash

So there you go; stuffed stuff, painty parts, stitchy bits AND an English lesson..where you gunna get that for your Sausage & Mash?
(...my shop by the way!)



TTFN and thanks for droppin' by!
