Well the wanderer has returned from her Victorian evening.
Oh it was such good fun!! I am pleased we dressed up now or we just wouldn't have looked right.
At the last minute I made a couple of shawls and mop caps for us to wear .. .. and I must admit by the end of the evening we were glad of the shawls for snuggling under. We were inside the salon but had to keep the door open to welcome our visitors.
My sister and her youngest daughter had made mince pies .. .. but because the salon had been based on Sweeney Todd for the evening the pies were made with fingers and things sticking out of them. They were a great source of entertainment and were munched on readily alongside the sweeties and little tots of sherry (and of course we had to keep sampling them all throughout the evening to make sure they were suitable for consumption by others LOL!!!).
Not sure if there will be any pictures available .. .. .. I will have to wait and see.
Anyway, round to another Christmas share:
Image, sentiment and backing papers: Pink Petticoat
Nestabilities: Deckled Mega Rectangles
Josy Rose: Nail Heads
My trusty sewing machine
So we had a lovely evening last night and we got to sleep over which was nice. Tonight we are meeting up with some of our friends .. .. eeekk!! .. .. the socialising season is approaching!!! Out come the elasticated waistbands LOL!!!
Have a good evening everyone.
I'll see you again tomorrow with my snippets. Only six more weeks to go and my year is up!!! I can't say it was the successful snippet reduction year I was hoping for :-( but at least it has given me better habits.
