The Grand Opening wth VIP guests and everything!

My Lords, Ladies and Gentlemen it is with great honour that I invite you to the Grand Opening of 'The Dressing Room' (Oversized walk in wardrobe to the poor folk). I know that many of you have been waiting with bated breath for the big reveal. I apologise to any of you that have been inconvenienced in any way. The Right Honourable Sue was invited to cut the ribbon and some VIPs were also in attendance. The lovely Dawn was also present as sTitchWITS was on today also, as you can see a very full social calendar for me today.
Whilst waiting for the Right Honourable Sue we mingled with the VIPs who had come to be part of this auspicious occasion, I shall introduce them to you now....

Firstly we have Madge, a no nonsense kind of woman that is happy to clean every crevice, if where she put her feather duster is anything to go by! I'm still spitting feathers!

Our overseas visitor Heidi was very excited to be part of such a grand event....

And lastly and by no means least to add some glamour to the preceedings the sumptious Saffron was able to fit us into her very hectic schedule, the paparazzi outside were making such a commotion!

Sadly all these lovely ladies had to leave before Sue arrived, Madge had a posh dunny to go and clean, Heidi went and skipped naked in the fields with the goats and Saffron made her escape out the back way to avoid the paparazzi and their pressing questions about rumours of her alleged affair with an 18 yr old rugby player and a stick of celery. I couldn't possibly comment!

Sue arrived shortly afterwards and the room was officially opened with the assistance of the lovely Dawn, who I think was at this point wondering what she had got involved in...

We live on a farm so we use farm implements okay!!

Now for the very cool part!

Cushions and curtains handmade
