Book Week

At school this coming week we are celebrating book week and are having a dress up day on Monday. We have to either come as our favourite book character or in our PJ's for the day.
My 2 favourite books were Lucy Goosey and Pearl Barley ...
I am under no illusion that I am an accomplished garment sewer, however I did have a jumper just the colour of Pearl's. My hair is long and wild enough to make these pigtails, so the only thing missing was the red skirt. I thought I'd have a go at it and look what I created!!!
. . . oh, and my little Peter wondered all night what he would dress up in and finally came out after much consultation with his big sister and a date with the "dress up box" as Little Red Riding Hood's Grandmother.

P.S. LITTLE WOMEN, if you read this, please leave an email contact so we can invite you to our sewing group, otherwise email me with your details.
