The Man Engine, Embroidery Silks and Haberdashery

Those of you who are regular readers will know how I love to sing and that I sing with two choirs. Soon I am to sing with a third and I am very excited! It is to be the choir especially brought together for The Man Engine Resurrection Tour that begins at Easter and we start rehearsals next week. There has been a very special bus going around Cornwall advertising the tour. I haven’t managed to see it but here is a photo taken by Chris of the bus. You may have seen my posts about this remarkable mechanical puppet in the Summer of 2016. You can check them out here and  here. I urge you to do so as he is splendiferous! The tour this time is going around the country so, please don’t miss it! Here is where you can get tickets for Wales, Yorkshire and more!

“The largest mechanical puppet ever constructed in Britain (powered by Volvo) and winner of the ‘Best Arts Project’ in the National Lottery Awards 2017, returns this Easter for his much-anticipated Resurrection Tour. ”           manenginetickets.com

The Man Engine Bus

LiveWire No 3 has requested a sewing box for her 7th birthday soon so I have had lots of fun deciding what to put in her box. That has been ordered online (our local shop didn’t have what we wanted) and here are some of the bits. I shall add more fro my own stock before we post it all off.  I am delighted that I have inspired her as my Granny inspired me!

Embroidery silks

T enjoyed doing some free design embroidery when last with us so I think will enjoy having her own embroidery hoop and coloured silks.
