Cockney Stitches...

Having embroidered a bunch of rather random things over the last couple of weeks, I hatched a Father's Day plan for my Dad.

First there was the little dog, which I originally thought I would stick on a card...




Then there was the little old fashioned phone...


So guess what, I stitched up a little bone to complete the scene.

Did you see where I was going?


Now for those who are not familiar with Cockney rhyming slang, I suggest you have a play hereAneela suggested I whip up a 'cock' and 'knee', and I may well do so!

I popped the card in the post yesterday, so I hope it arrived today in time for tomorrow, I will phone him in the morning to find out; and I will also be able to show you what I made for my dear husband too.

    Seriously, (well that is pretty serious around here), I have my second child graduating from college tomorrow with First Lady Michelle Obama speaking.
    Father's Day will be rather low-key for us.

    I did enjoy a moment in cock-knee world though.
