Primary School needlework. Sewing classes for girls - these pieces of material were used to teach basic and some fancy embroidery stitching. We proudly took them home and presented them to our parents and grand-parents who would display them on sideboards and dressing tables.
Possibly my biggest SOS of a crush, I wanted to have the same lip shape as 80s kids TV presenter Timmy Mallett. Wacky, vivid and possibly the next on the BBC inspection list, this oddball and his foam friend was an unavoidable watch come Saturday mornings, and ultimately a crush for me waiting to happen. Ashamed? Nah. Though I am probably a psychologists dream subject.
