Which Witch Was Where?

Halloween was celebrated in style at Hello Dollies in October.
Thanks to everyone who  put their best outfits on for the day! This month, November, remember it's fascinators or funny hats! 

And another fabulous 'show and tell' -  works in progress, a pair from Lightning Ridge,  more witches  and  exquisite work  completed from 'Dolls in the Attic " Retreat. 

Congratulations to all - great work! 
See you on 23 November at Anne's Glory Box  - with a fantastic fascinator or a funny hat!
