It's traditional to give something away if you are taking part in Blogtoberfest but not mandatory by any means. I wasn't going to until I spotted Lily Pad chicken in the pile waiting to be listed as one of my Liberty fabric paperweight chickens. He'd gone missing for a couple of days earlier in the week and when he got back from wherever he had been, he would only lie on his side and he moaned a lot. Lets see if you can spot what is amiss - you'll have to look carefully!
That's right - he snuck off to a plastic surgeon and had a bum lift! Now, many people wouldn't notice this, and he insisted he hadn't had anything done but I can spot chicken surgery a mile off* And of course all Swirlyarts chickens need to be 'au naturel' to go in my shops so he couldn't be sold. He doesn't want to live with me any more (he muttered something about control freak and I think he swore) so it's best he goes to live with someone else who doesn't mind his bum lift or his slightly sweary ways :)
So if you would like Mr Lily Pad to come and live at your house (with some other goodies thrown in too) then just leave a comment. It doesn't have to be anything fancy - just a hello will do! I will let this competition run for a week so comments will close at 8pm (UK time) on the 10th Oct. Good luck and don't forget to tell your friends!
*Of course I made a little mistake sewing him up (not tricky when surrounded by screaming children at ballet!) but it seemed much more interesting to make up funny stories about the characters I make. And I'm in good company although Jodie's stories are much better than mine!
