Angry? We're bloody furious

Bangkok’s Melbourne Cup is the Australian and New Zealand Women’s Group’s biggest fundraiser. Cancelled last November because of the threat of floods, today has been billed as ‘melbourne cup Retrospective.’

I don’t care what it’s called; I get to wear my fascinator. At last.

Back in September K and I began planning. We talked about inviting the same women as last year, minus those that have moved (C & C we miss you) and trying to find the theme. Then, good ol’ Husband came up with the idea/theme. Was he trying to tell me something?

K & I set of for Pratunam for materials and then I began work on the prototype. My second design got the thumbs up.

Big thanks to K for helping to cut out hundreds of pieces of felt.

 It was fiddly, but it was worth it.

Can you see what it is yet?

Absolutely, we could have bought them; these little guys are sold everywhere but where would the fun be in THAT? Major thanks goes to the generosity of Obsessively Stitching blog who has put up the how-to-make and pattern for (non commercial use) for the angry birds.

Then it was time to get everyone round so I could teach them to assemble their hats, Blue Peter style.

The finished fascinator:

Pour on something gloopy (probably wheaty, uh oh.)

Then the bad bit; if you close your eyes during this phase it doesn't really happen.

Finally, here's the yummy bit:

Now then, this is MY kind of flower arrangement. The picture is a bit rubbish because it was taken on my 'phone but if you look closely, those are Ferrara Roche chocolates.

Oh yum.
