Day of dance- warning, pictures, many pictures!

 Not a lot of cake left after 70 Morris men have had their tea. Not a lot of sandwiches either. 5 loaves and 3 fishes just about managed to feed them all!
Well, egg, ham and cheese sandwiches figured in there too. And I have had to bring some cake home, about three slices each of chocolate cake, lemon drizzle, and a scrap of carrot cake. Not much else though!

 Mersey Morris are blue and yellow,

 Those long trails of blue and green are called Motley. Not quite what I think of as motley, but...

 note the blue faces!


Sky blue and maroon are Thelwall Morris- this is the side my husband participates in.

 There were sword dancers too

 I think this one came over from Leeds. I just love his owl.

We had tea in the upstairs room, which the pub let us use, free of charge. Mind you, I think there was some beer taken! So I think she made her rental!

 The embroidery on the belts and braces of the clog dancers was rather special.

And this is a special lady clog dancer. Pretty and talented, and quite a sweetie. No, she is not my daughter, so I do not have to say that, but she is a good lass.

and some audience participation was encouraged

So, that is part of the reason there has been no sewing today! I am now going FLOP.

Maybe sewing tomorrow.
