It's been a busy week...

my sewing machine has been whirring away at night over the past week...but I have not been the one operating it.  DD2 needed a costume for this weekend so she waited till I was back from Sydney to get started.  With work, a little bit has had to be done each night.  DD2 has been doing the sewing and 'creating' and I have been the 'support crew'...with some pinning (many seams together), cutting out, fitting, trimming, and re-threading the overlocker several times (what a job that is!) and 'offering advice' when it was asked are a few photos of the nearly end result,  themed on the Queen of Hearts...finishing touches and accessories tonight
