The Christmas Tea

It’s been almost a week and I’m finally getting to the post about my costume groups Christmas get together!

Setting the table for the gathering. I am wearing my favorite dress…a 1870’s pattern and using my 1940’s dishware that I’m trying to collect a descent set of.

Lottie came dressed in 1700’s style. Not our usual Victorian theme…I told the girls to wear something comfortable and something they have been wanting to get more use out of.

Shirley came in some festive 1860’s wear.

After some tea and muffins we did the gift exchange.

I got a bigger haul because it was a birthday/Christmas combo.

Time for the stitching.

Shirley wound a skein of wool into a ball.

Lottie added a few more rows to her Canadian Cloud.

I worked on some trim for the bodice of my next dress...1858 Lottie (Named after Lottie who bought the fabric for me when she went to CoCo).
