Good afternoon, where has the morning gone???  I  should note should have been doing housework. But I need to get on and finish the "cake". Yes it's for an AC/DC fan, and yes it is a sock monkey of Angus Young.
I am still going to have a fairly busy week next, and some of my time could be running around seeing where Anna has got herself to on the bus, she just couldn't understand why she had to look for things that would telling her it would be time to press the STOP button.  It will be Fun, fun, we should have started earlier with the bus trips.   As long as she remembers her phone and has charge in it we will be able to find her.  Beth doesn't go back to school until Wednesday. Any way cake need for the following week so I want it to be finished by this weekend.

A bit of a photo over load ( sorry). So here we go.

I have just to play around and put ribbon round the edge and do finishing touches, plus Derek and Tammy have to say if they want anything else done with it.

Hopefully I will get back to normal , well as normal as I can be by next week, and I will get me time so I can do some crafting.

Thank you for all your comments.

    I don't envy you your job Hazel, I wonder how these girls are going to manage in the big wide world, good job you are there for them. Hugs Kate x

  3. Hi Hazel, I'm like Kate I have heard of the band but that's it! It looks fab and I am sure the recipient will love it. I am sure she will only miss her stop once then she will pay attention in the future! Susan x

  7. Hi Hazel,
    fabulous really fabulous.
    the recipient is going to be so pleased with this.
    Had family staying latter part of this week, and my daughter in laws Mum has had an emergency hysterectomy a couple of weeks ago because of a cancer scare, she had the all clear this weekend, and they say she doesn't need Radio therapy either.
    This is brill news as she has beaten a cancer scare with her breast too.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  8. this really is looking fabulous - any ACDC fan would adore it xx

  9. This is so dang cute! I don't know the band (remember I'm an ole lady and no youngsters to keep me informed on current groups any more!). You've done a terrific job at personifying this group (and leader of the group I guess). Good luck with your bus charge. That would be so scary I think. Good thing there's cell phones now. Save a lot of stressful worry I expect. Hope all goes well, and that you get your project done in plenty of time. TFS & Hugs

  10. Fabulous cake for any music fan especially an ACDC fan. Love every aspect of it and so much work. You do such a great job of these gifts.
    My boys are back tomorrow and not a moment too soon, fed up of the fighting! Argh.
    Happy crafting, hugs Erika.

  11. How cool is that?! It's a lovely gift for an AC/DC fan! I used to love them when I was a teenager, I still listen at them occasionally.

    Warm hugs

  12. Like some of the others I have heard of the band but not got the foggiest who are in it - but the project is looking fab and I'm sure will be much appreciated by the intended recipient xx all goes okay for the school return xx GailT xx

  13. Hi Hazel
    This is going to go down very well with the recipient. Love the sock Angus!
    Hope the bus doesn't go too far. You don't want her ending up in Inverness lol!
    Take care.

  16. Hazel,thanks for your visit & sweet comment. Didn't know that NC had a quake...will have to check that out. We live about 1 1/2 hr from the SC/NC state line. Actually my birthplace was NCarolina and spent most of my youth in that Carolina. Then 40+ years in So. Florida before retiring to SC (SC has a cheaper cost of living than NC. SC probably has the cheapest gasoline prices in the USA). SC is considered the 'poor state' of the 2 Carolinas. Both are very pretty states however. Happy upcoming week.

  17. Hi Hazel

    This is a fabby work in progress .. .. it must have taken a lot of thinking through.

    I wouldn't have known where to start!!!

    Hope you are having a good week.

    Love Jules xx

  18. Wow Hazel, that's such a cool make.....I'm a massive AC/DC fan, this takes me back a few years to seeing Angus in his prime.....makes all my kids jealous lol!
