please, not MORE corsets!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sorry, but I did warn you! 
We had a great time in sunny Dorset.  The weather was gorgeous, the people friendly, and the quilts stunning.

The village was gorgeous.  The exhibition started in the church hall and our corsets were displayed on the stage.
One of the quilters had made a patchwork skirt so that joined our corsets on stage.
I'm really pleased with how the wings came together on my 'peacock lady' corset.  Neet's 'viva la diva' corset was very eye catching.  Quilts were hung in the church hall and also in the church.
It was all so 'English' :)
Quilts were also hung around the village and if you followed them you reached Becca's shop!
We made new friends, added new hobbies to our existing lists, and enjoyed the home-made cakes baked by the quilting ladies.  I didn't quite get a real 'cream tea' ( scones with jam and clotted cream with a cup of tea) but did get a yummy scone with cream.

How gorgeous - Carol said you'd had a fab time! It all looks great - I wish I'd seen it after hearing so much about them all over the last year - looking forward to them all coming up north! If they are? Doubt the weather will be so good though!!

Thank you so much Sarah for showing me my corset. It really means a lot to me.
Glad you had such a good time and the display looks wonderful.

Thanks for showing the photos Sarah, what a lot of hours must have gone into all those corsets and quilts. Love the idea of them using the village to showcase them all! Glad you had a great time:)
