Distracted by tutus

PInk tutu

I’m meant to be making a pirate collection of clothing in time for the next Pirates of the Caribbean film, On Stranger Tides, which comes out in May. Instead I did this…

I knew that all the lovely net would distract me. Especially as I’m interested in coming up with the best tutu pattern for the kids to wear for Glastonbury festival. With this one I used white cotton muslin for the lining as the pale pink colour of the net still shows up beautifully against it. I made it for age 5-7 years, but it’s so stretchy, it will also fit my 12 year old. Unless she manages to persuade me to let her have it, I’ll be listing it on Oshun soon.

It was an early start to ensure we could get tickets into the house, so in the hour we had to wait our turn, it was the perfect opportunity to wonder the grounds and take photos….

Visiting the Jack o’lantern Blaze & wearing my new purple coat
October 30, 2018
We couldn’t be in America without visiting a Halloween event, could we? Friends recommended the Jack o’lantern Blaze at Croton-on-Hudson in New York, and we were lucky enough to get tickets. This event sells out weeks beforehand, but I think I happened to be online when a new batch was released for an 8:30pm time slot on Tuesday. So I bought the tickets in a bit of a panic, but didn’t really know what it was I was buying them for!…
