Dealing with the gremlins

Post by Mark Heaps »

Disclaimer -all crocheted figures were done by Pat Heaps for them to go to charity shops of Veterans at Ease to raise much needed funds .
Some did not reach the charity shops but were sold beforehand.

Anyone know the term for a group of gremlins ? One of the little buggers caused enough problems on its own

This lot, although not all gremlin hunters were picked up from Mum last Sunday and headed to the charity shops of Veterans at Ease to raise funds to help troubled veterans come to terms with their own personal "gremlins".

He's the big chap sporting a red hat and blue duffel coat. Normally, this attire is worn by Paddington bear but this guy definitely has a Basil Brush face and nose! My wife does loads of crochet but, sadly, I can't persuade her to do a 1/6 th panzer crew member.

I think you need to pay more attention on the AFV ( Assorted Fluffy Volounteers ) recognition lectures.

Many visual indications that pictured is indeed a Paddington and not a Basil in disguise.

:lol:

The Wallace & Grommit are roughly 1/6th scale. John has them crewing (and protecting) his Armortek Kingtiger.
The squaddie, 3rd row ,second from left, looks to be about the same size.

Contact John on this forum or through their website.If they have not already sold, then for a suitable donation I am sure one could be posted to you.
Alternatively if your wife agrees to crochet one but needs the pattern, contact dad, Tony Heaps, on this forum and ask if 0B ( SWMBO ) could forward it.

A photo that John sent me

“Grommet, when I said track the gremlins I meant follow them with a gun, ( Oops oh well never mind).”
