Don’t you want to play it again? I remember watching this famous wobbly in real time, in, ahem, 1981. THIRTY YEARS AGO. Cripes. It has always been my favourite McEnroe tantie. Someone close to me may even have been known to quote the man (during a Tania tantie). When the planetary alignment occurred a couple of days ago and there was a ridiculous need to throw myself in to some speedy, Why The Heck Not? making, this is where things ended up...
Entirely prompted by this needlepoint notion found in the fabulous book: Crafting a Meaningful Home,
I tweaked things a little to suit my swift crafting purposes: a hasty stencil, a one-off screenprint (whereby some of the stencil went, um, AWOL),
a speedy embroidering of John McEnroe and a post rationalised AHA! moment with the aida cloth (removing bits to pay homage to (badly strung) racquet strings)...
All up, I’m pretty chuffed. I mean, I’d do everything entirely differently, neatly, carefully, were I to do it again but as far as the dodgy bits go, I really couldn’t give a bad ball toss. Crafty mischief is wonderful for this soul, the Mr is resignedly signed up to yet more wall art and most of all, it’s a fabulous reminder to plant a smile on the dial. Life shouldn’t be so serious. Right?
For more mischief of the Creative Space making kind, go see Kirst.
