A Right Royal Coronation Chicken

        Some of you may have noticed that next week Britain is hosting a Right Royal Monday.  Despite the fact I think the royals should all be striped of their titles and live in normal sized houses and sell some of their stuff  and share the profits so we can all live in a more equal society -  I have all the same jumped on the band wagon and donned a plastic union jack bowler in order to make a quick buck out of it all!

Me and my creative chums from The Make District.  Have a been hard at work making stylish diamond jubilee themed goodies for our stall,  which will be amongst all the other festivities at the Midland Hotel in Morecambe on Bank holiday Monday organised by the marvellous  Dottys Vintage.
The money we raise from our stall will go towards putting on some fantastic workshops in Lancaster over the summer.  So  - cheers Queenie! I have make a bird themed illustration in your honor.

A Coronation Chicken recipe
When I was 18 I worked at Smiths Sandwiches where I had to boil 6 chickens a day, some of which were made into that British classic sandwich filler -  Coronation Chicken.

Here is the recipe we used:
little bits of cooked chicken
curry powder
Er... yum?

Also during this past month I've added some new designs to my Strange Bird shop  -  like these....
