Witchy stitching....

The Gisborne witches and associated familiars gathered for a fun night celebrating Halloween!
People brought fun food and dressed up accordingly.

Jenny was the Chief Witch, presiding with a snazzy cape and a flashing - and sometimes collapsing - wand.
 Tracy really got into the spirit of things, with fetching green, snake infested headwear, limegreen makeup, bone bling, and stripey stockings.
It was suggested she would be a sensation at the Melbourne Cup in this getup, but somehow that failed to make an impression on her....oh well.
The food, as always, was plentiful, with Halloween marchmallow sticks, home made sausage rolls, lollies, noodle & chocolate 'spiders' and so on.
 The rest of the 'witches' were quite fashionable, with Jenny in a very scary mask. and Jenny (Marg's sister) sporting a skeleton cape, sure to appeal to the town's ghosties and ghoulies.

Marina successfully colour-coordinated her gear, presenting as the purple witch with a rather prominent proboscis. The hat was very swish!

Below are the noodle-spiders, tasted lovely, the legs were nice and crunchy.

 More witchy things happenning here. Tania stayed for a while, Helen was working on a pillow cover, and Donna's friend Maria was dolled up in a Halloween 'bib' (cape) and crocheting a beanie.
Maria feeling scary, and yours truly trying to look spooky (or spooked?!).

A fun time was had by all and it was great to see everybody getting into the spirit.


  1. Looks like you all had a wonderful time, sorry I missed it. I am looking forward to see what Hong Kong people do on Halloween.
