Well here I am again. I have been a bit slack lately as all the depressing things that have happened since the beginning of the year have weighed me down a little. I just could not believe the Tsunami in Japan. The photos were truly horrific and now the nuclear worry -it just doesn't improve a great deal. I was so thrilled to see that 80 year old lady and her grandson being rescued. I attended the St Marys Historical Society today to see the ladies dressed up as women from 1788 to the 1920's. They looked really good and told their stories well. Unfortunately I was seated in the middle of things and my photos are terrible. Although I am from Scotland and not St Marys I still found their stories interesting, it must be great if you are from the area.
I have to make an 1860's dress for a little girl called Skye, who attends St Marys Primary School. We(Encore) are dressing 5 children in the type of clothes they would have worn in the 1860's for their 150th school anniversary. I am looking forward to that I have to make her pantaloons too. Fay has taken a load of our china paintings to the Castle Hill Show. Some of Yuri's are absolutely beautiful so i guess she will win some prizes. Yuri is our Japanese friend at class. She had trouble contacting her brother in Tokyo but I think she has now heard from him it was difficult because there was no electricity and everyone was using their mobiles until they ran out of juice. Must have been a worry for her - and probably thousands of others..
