Time makes fools of us all

WELL, I m not going to be making a whole new velvet jacket to be the RingMaster. I came down with a cold on Tuesday night, and am still sick as a parrot. But, a day off due to said sickness (thanks to MrC holding the first solo)meant I could have a start at a costume.
I'm quite chuffed with my idea - using existing resources but blinging them up in a circus specific way.
No photos as yet - so here is an interim one showing the tiny topper I made today.
It is a teddy bear bowler hat with a 'cuff' slipped over the crown to turn it into a top hat. It should look well proper ridiculous on top of CC's hair!

  1. Dear Mrs. C.,
    Hope that by this time you are feeling much better.

    Please, for us across the Pacific, what does "sick as a parrot"? Parrots get ratty feathers when sick, but can't pull any other visuals.

    New Zealand aphorisms are truly cool.

    Very best,
