The making of a Queen

 Working on the latest adventures of Hortense Hare, I felt the need for Her Majesty the Queen of Hearts to join the party.
Thinking about her gown, I found this fabric with red AND white roses on...
 She is a little bit "wonkier" than I normally manage, but I was determined to try using my sewing machine to make her...
 and the wooden heart buttons were a must have....
 The Rose fabric was very "loud", so I combined it with a more sedate gold on black print to calm it a little...
 But Her Maj is not known for her subtlety, and insisted on frills and bling.
 A hand crafted heart and flower pendant and a matching hat to finish her ensemble....
and Her Majesty was ready to party...!
Now she is off, sneaking around Hortense's garden, trying to find out what she is up to while Harriet and Horatio are away. Her friend has been behaving a tad stranger than usual....

To find out what Hortense has been up to you will have to join me on Saturday for the Fanciful Twist Halloween Party

and if you have the time, why not join in :D XXX
