I am drawing breath today after what seems to have been the busiest school term ever for my three kiddies. Term 3 at our school culminates in musical performances. I help out with the costume making which is great fun.
It is always such a privilege to work with the children & get to know them a little.
And of course, there is enormous satisfaction in sitting in the audience, enjoying the sea of colour and watching the whole show come together.
This year's musical was a Zorro inspired work, so lots of bright colours, sombreros & twirling skirts.


  1. What a great looking show. I helped costume making this year too and loved it. It makes the night extra special seeing it all come together. Love all the colours.

  2. Looks like fun! My mom used to sew costumes for dance studios. Our house was always full of shiny fabric,sequins and kids for fittings.

  3. The costumes are amazing, what fun. Can you email me? your down as no reply blogger and I don't have your address.

  4. It looks like it was a lot of fun. Haven't been to a school musical since I was at school but they formed many great memories. I am certain the kids, or their mums, appreciated your help.

  5. It looks like they are all having A good time My mum used to make the costumes for the dancing school I went when I was little My job was cutting off the tails of cotton and sewing on sequins more sequins on the floor than on the costumes It was fun times.
    Hugs Mary.

  6. What a wonderful experience for those youngest daughter was in a performance of The Wizard of Oz a few years ago and she still talks excitedly about it!
    Enjoy your weekend!! Cathyx

  7. The production looks wonderful. I just discovered your blog and will definitely be back.

  8. I agree that getting to know the children your own children spend the day with is a privilege. I always tried to be one of the volunteers at my children´s school.
