The sun is still shining and I am happy for that and many more reasons. I'm back on track feeling well again and at last getting so much accomplished this week.
I made a pale blue Merida outfit, which is in my last post, for my grandee in Brighton and I've just finished this one for my grandee in Germany so now all three will have similar dresses.
I love making the head dresses and I managed to make up a practical, soft crown with elastic at the back to keep it in place. There's also a veil to wear under it. The gold trimmings are plastic and come by the yard so cheaply but really do look so effective.
Here's the dress.... just needs to be hemmed when I check the length.... they are all growing so quickly.
There's a head band which doubles as an optional belt and the medallion is removable so it, and the belt, can be used with other outfits.
It's a fancy dress costume ready in advance for Halloween... a witch's skirt and cape, and here's the quirky hat ...
It's Friday Smile Time, thanks to Annie, and I'm so glad she does have something to smile about after a traumatic worrying week for her and her family. After being rushed to hospital, little Sam is happily on the mend so pop over to hear all about it on her Friday Smile
Warning! Skip the next bit if you have an aversion to rodents....
This was going to be my smile.....We spotted these two amazing creatures in the pet section of our local garden section....... I think they are more of an Eeeew....yuk! Wrinkly hairless rats..... who on earth would want one of these as a pet? Sooooooo, instead....
I thought I'd better give an "oooooh!" too, so this morning I took a pic of my lovely Camellia to share, which DD2 bought me in a tiny pot, for £1.99 in Woolworths (Ah, I miss Woolys, don't you?) about 20 years ago! I think of her with love and give thanks each time it produces it's abundance of beautiful blooms. It is now a substantial tree of about 10 feet high which is such a pleasure to see from our living room window, flowering for weeks and weeks.
and if you haven't got one of your own at the moment, pop over to Annie's to share everyone else's.
