Pinups and Pin Cushions

What a great weekend! Dr. Sketchys in Birmingham, helping my friend Naomi celebrate her wedding with a garden party and a flea market on Monday! Bought 12 more vintage cups and saucers for my pin cushions as well as an original WWII RAF suitcase. I have just booked our hotel in Colchester for the Escape to Victory event this coming Sunday. Please come along and show your support to the British Legion. This will be an amazing event for charity. So many of us are giving their time for free, so that more money can be raised.

Dr. Sketchys went really well. I performed Songbird without the birdcage (it was either Richard or the cage and I had to go with Mr. Mew!). I did a tiny bit of drawing myself in between poses. I will post when I can and show you other people’s work too!

I worked through the night to create a special pincushion for my friend Naomi who got married at the Hard Days Night Hotel in Liverpool. I  made a little Yellow Submarine with pin fish and clouds in the background with a quote from the book ‘You must remember this, a kiss will never miss and after many kisses, a kiss becomes a missus.’

Dr. Sketchys Birmingham

Tomorrow I will be performing at Dr. Sketchy’s at the Victoria Pub, John Brighton St in Birmingham. Bring along your sketch pads and come along for a relaxed afternoon of Burlesque and life drawing! Doors open at 3.30pm.

I will be performing my Songbird routine (minus the cage), singing live and posing for drawings. I will also be donning my mermaid outfit for a 2nd pose later on!
