It's an Art Attack!!!

There are probably not many who'd know what I'm talking about when I say "Art Attack" ... it was an English tv show that DD2 used to really love when she was younger. And that's exactly what she and her friend Nadia had on the weekend ... an art attack!!! Nadia came over in a pair of jeans that she'd been painting in - with cute coloured handprints on them. Now they have much more on them since Jess (DD2) attacked them with her coloured Sharpies!!! Don't they look fabulous!!!??!! Here's the front ...... and the back ............
I think perhaps these girls were born about 30 years too late, I'm sure they would have been hippies LOL .......
How cute are the footprints!!!?!!
Of course, like any 'artist' - Jess has signed her work ..... most modestly of course (NOT!!!!) LOLOL .............
Just in case Nadia forgets what this pocket is for..............
While the girls were busy with their artwork I got to making another Annie :o)!! Well, I know I was supposed to be finishing my Wildflower Serenade quilt, but I'm waiting for some ric rac so it's on hold for now ... and I didn't want to start another quilt so I made this ...............
This is Molly and we're keeping her, she'll be a friend for Phoebe :o) .......
I used the same pattern from Raggedy Old Annies again, it's easy peasy to follow.

Sunday DH and I went to the Ekka ... the Exhibition, Brissy's big show of the year. We had a fabulous time. We didn't visit sideshow alley ... I'm just NO good on the rides he he he, but here's the view from the chair lift. I was sooooo nervous, I don't do heights well and I was hanging on for dear life, but we had to go on it as it's the last year it will be there. The Ekka next year will be completely different as there are lots of changes coming in the coming year.
Loved seeing all the animals ... isn't this big guy just amazing!!!??! Sorry about the blurry piccy :o/ ......
Of course the Ekka wouldn't be the same without the dollies and bears :o) .....
Came home with a couple of showbags for DD2 - she couldn't come with us because she was working. Maybe next year.
Hope you had a wonderful weekend!!!!!

Cool jeans, would have been perfect for Woodstock in the '70's.
Last week was the 30th anniversary of Woodstock!

I *love* the jeans!! So much fun - I think I better show Blossom so her and her best buddy Frances can do something similar. What a treasure to keep!
Love your doll, Joy...she is a real sweetie, and I think I'm going through a red phase so I am loving her all the more for that!

Looks like you had a great day at the Ekka. I love the new Annie-I think that pattern will have to come to my place.
Love the new title photo on the blog.

You did a beautiful job on the dolls. How do you get their cheeks to look so good? I follow the instructions but my dolls cheeks look sketchy not soft like yours.
