Costume and set day

Daughter Carol called on Drama Club and community members to help make costumes and paint sets for The Little Mermaid today. So with sewing machine in hand, I headed off to school today.

Cast members who were able to come today had the opportunity to create their own costumes.

T shirts were slit, painted, beaded, and ruffled in a variety of ways.

The set pieces were all built a couple of weeks ago, and today a great deal of the set was painted.

There are 55 cast members, and it's great fun to see moms and dads participating along with their children!

I'm making progress on the medium sized Mermaid Tail afghan. I found out today that one of the moms is making mermaid themed quilts to be raffled off. I think this is going to be an amazing fund raiser!

As Eliz guessed, I started my newest Spinning Wheel is in the pink Fiore thread. So far, I'm really liking this thread! I wonder where I can get more colors?

  4. Thanks for the pictures. It's great being able to follow the community preparation for the event after following your own efforts thus far. You make me wish I could come to the play, but you are just too far away. The shades in that new thread are working up very nicely in your new mat.

  5. Wow the stage looks great and fun raffle too, I bet your wondering if this thread comes in blue

  6. Looks like busy excitement!!! :)
