Getting Ready

Perhaps she ought to be called Madonna, she has had so many incarnations.

Well three.  She's had three.  Her stylist thinks we might be there now.

A softer finer look was required.  A little bit old worldy.  A little bit glam.  A little bit saucy.

Betty is dressed in Zarina 4 ply knitted up in a gorgeous coral red and delicious chocolate brown with a pearl shell and gilt edged beading peaking out from the neckline.

Betty the Burlesque Dancer is one of 9 tea cosies on display at the Powerhouse Museum from this Thursday 4th March.

5 cosies are new designs not seen in either publication.  

We are all of us in Port Stephens, (while The Bloke does fishy things) having our finishing touches.  A new petticoat here, an extra stitch there.

And of course a little rest up and some last words of encouragement from The Queen before the big outing.

Excited.  Nervous.  Excited.  Happy.  Nervous.  Excited.

How outrageously exciting for you and the girls. I wish I could get down to Sydney to see the display.

I do hope you have time to kick of the shoes and relax a bit before you embark on the hectic schedule ahead of you.
