Ooh ahh me hearties!

Right then I have got my title, now I need a picture.
So gather together tooth pillows and camera.
OOh post here, wander off and deal with that first.
Boring only a bill.
Right back to the photo.
Now where did I put that little charity shop basket? That will look nice.
Ah found it. Wrestle it from a small child, offer a biscuit to swap.
So if I fill the basket that looks quite good.
Stop small child from feeding biscuit to dog.
Right where shall I take the picture?
Yes living room, nope too messy.
Ok Kitchen table. Need to clear it first.
Rescue small child from falling into book box.
Find scarp of biscuit she had dropped in it and give it back to her
Back to the kitchen table, it needs a wipe.
If I put the basket there?...
Wrestle basket from small child, offer some raisins to swap....and a biscuit!
No can't have the basket like that, the background is too messy, I am not tidying that bit now. ahhah if I turn it that way it looks neater.
Stop small child from feeding raisins to dog.
Phone rings, deal with that, right ready to take the picture.
Wheres the basket?
Ah yes wrestle basket from small child Bribe child with Cbeebies

These are boy friendly tooth pillows. I thought robots but Thingy ( sorry, its a bit like toddler group when you don't actaully know somones name!) at Moss Stitch suggested pirates, which was a great idea. I also made some little aliens.

These are the arty plaques I made that I did not get chance to take a photo of last time. The little ones say My total love and I am yours in all. The larger one says
