The 18th century rector

 So here we are - The Rector@6 and his missus at the street fair. The door curtains turned into a very presentable dress and even the Rector's hat and wig stayed on. We won a prize for the best dressed group so all the hard work was worth it. Now the question is - will the Rector@6 be in costume for tomorrow's service? You will have to be there to know the answer!

An added bonus to the day was the success of the upper house group's reflection zone in the church - an interactive prayer space was created and was well received. With only a couple of weeks to create this from the first germ of an idea - it just shows how much untapped energy there is around. Who else will come out of the woodwork?!


  1. The dress from earlier times seems wonderful! Congratulations!

    "Upper house groups reflection zone in the church" sounds awesome. But what is it? Upper house groups? Reflection zone? Thoughtful touch for a festival time!

    Blessings and Bear hugs!

  2. Excellent costumes, and-- I like the way it ALL sounds!

  3. That's hilarious! you look brilliant, so impressed by your sewing skills! Mx

    1. The things one has to do when one is a Rector's wife! Just remember, little sister, that I was nearly thrown out of sewing classes so this really was a major feat ...and a good laugh!

    2. Well the first and only skirt i made in Mrs B's sewing class was made into a duster. But my children can't even turn up the hems of their trousers so i must have learnt something. Mx

    3. Ha ha! Turn up hems - don't you have sticky tape to do that these days!? By the way.....what are dusters? ;) x

  4. Most impressive, and it looks like you were both enjoying yourselves immensely. :-)
