Mad Hatter's Tea Party

Last weekend there was a Mad Hatter's Tea Party at Hobbycraft in Carlisle.

It was the brainchild of my colleague Charlie, and it ran over Saturday and Sunday.

You may remember I knitted some little cakes and biscuits for the event.  But better than that, there was REAL CAKES !

Unfortunately I wasn't there to document the event, so I sent Daddy L in my place, armed with a long list of things to photograph.

People came in fancy dress, there was white rabbits.....(Amanda & Shelley)

Cheshire cats....(Hannah)

Mad Hatters.......(Shona & Helen)

Tweedle Dee AND Dum  - together as one (Marie)

There was plenty of activities, a Cheshire Cat hunt, Iced Tea, Face Painting, mug designing and lots more....

And colleagues painting each other!
We had a fabulous caterpillar to watch over the proceedings with the wonderfully colourful pom-pom segments made by local schools.
And of course a Mad Hatter's Tea Party would not be complete without Alice.....knitted by Gaynor.

And a dress made for a life sized Alice by the fabulous Lauren, our costume making colleague.
