The "whimsical" is indicative of it not necessarily being religious in nature, and the "shrine" is an ancient Craftalese word that means "many bits glued together". Wink

Cheesy brilliant definition

Agreed!

I love the little fairy garden!

I've just finished making a new cover for an old beanbag. It belongs to my neighbour, the fabrics are reclaimed from other things and I'm really pleased with how it came out. I reused the zip from the original cover which was a tatty faux fur thing reminiscent of a dead sheep  Roll Eyes
I also rescued and revitalised a Thomas the Tank Engine cushion for the little boy next-door, one of their dogs had great fun shredding it and chasing stuffing around the living room when they were out.I cut out the picture off of the front and appliqud it to a new cushion cover then made a new insert. result = one very happy 2 yr old  Grin

Kookie--that cover turned out really nice!  It must have been a bear to sew--so large and such a long zipper, I imagine!

It is so nice for you to offer your sewing skills to rescue a favorite item!  Watch out, though, you will get a reputation and soon the whole neighborhood will be bringing you stuff to fix! Grin

All the neighbours bring me thins to fix already, I get cake or cookies as payment  Grin
I was surprised at how easily the zip went on especially as it wasn't a new one.

Made my Beloved some pj pants this afternoon,this is the first time I have made them with pockets  Smiley

nice!  Is the fabric a woven or a knit?  I know my hubby also has to have pockets in his PJ pants...I like them in mine as well...

lol I knew you would be recruited to do the neighborhood mending, but to get goodies for it...now I need to try that! Grin

Nice job on the bean bag pillow cover, Kookaloo! How kind of you to rescue the little boy's Thomas the Train Engine's pillow. Bet he'll love you forever! Or at least until he grows up and and puts Thomas aside.  Wink

Fantastic job matching the plaid fabric on your dh's pajama pants. I've seen a lot of commercially produced clothing items that weren't nearly as well done. Think you need to join our quilt block swap since you're that good!  Grin

AWESOME rainbow scarf! The world can never have enough rainbows  Grin

The pjs are a woven fabric and the pattern matching a total fluke  Roll Eyes we don't tend to worry about things matching when it's just for wearing around the house Cheesy

I'm fake swapping the Quilt Block swap until I'm confident enough to join (and when the s start flowing again!)
