There was a new costume exhibit, A Century of Style and Colour 1800 – 1899, opening at Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum in Glasgow. So when I noticed it mentioned on the Kestral Makes blog, who is the co host of the #vintagepledge, I thought I’ll get in touch and meet up with the group of sewing and knitting bloggers who live in Edinburgh and Glasgow who were planning a trip to the exhibition, then for lunch and a fabric/pattern swap. A big thank you to Franca from the Oranges and Apples blog, who organised it all.
These are just a few of my favourite costumes from the exhibition.
These are the goodies I got from the pattern/fabric swap.
And on to the theatre
Many years ago I watched this film, and I thought Wow!!
So when my daughter asked if I wanted to go to see Carmen at the Festival Theatre in Edinburgh I was delighted. Sometimes you wonder if things get exaggerated in your head over the years!? On Friday we went to see the performance and all I can say is another Wow!!
Now I’m looking forward to the next one!
