DS celebrated his 30th birthday yesterday with a party themed on "come dressed as someone you wanted to be when you grew up"

DH always wanted to be a teacher, and did, hence his outfit in the photo below and I went dressed as "I wanna be teachers pet". As you can see I am standing on my tiptoes to give "teach" a peck on the cheek and then give him an apple.

Some of the other outfits were quite amazing and fun - a transformer complete with laser gun, wrestler, Audrey Hepburn with her breakfast at Tiffanys outfit, horseriders, mad scientist, gymnasist, magician, airline pilot (birthday boy) and doctor to name but a few. A fun night was had by all.

After seeing that photo I have made a mental note to myself not to ever wear a gathered skirt again. Not very flattering around the hip area.

Sadly I have to say that not much progress was made on the sewing front again this weekend. I only managed to sew the backing together for my oriental quilt. I did put a deadline of September for completion and hopefully I will still be on track - well maybe if I extend it out to the end of September!

Sounds like you all had fun, I would have loved to see the transformer. The skirt looks fine to me Karen sort of schoolish if you know what I mean.

As long as you had fun Karen the sewing will keep .

Hi Karen, The party sounds like fun, Looks like a real school uniform which was never meant to be stylish anyway. TrishJ
