The Melbourne Cup is known as "the race that stops a nation" because, although today is not a holiday for most parts of Australia, there are few places where work doesn't stop while everybody watches the race.
For stay-at-home women it is an occasion marked by fantastic lunches - either attended at various glamorous venues or in the home of a hostess with the mostest.

So today a group of my friends and I dressed up a tiny bit, donned our race day hats and gathered at the home of one of those hostesses-with-the-mostest!

Ultimate glamour but oh the pain


 Did the size of my hat fool you???

It was tiny ...but oh so glam !!!

Not everyone wore hats .....


... but as you can see we had lots of laughs!

Anyone know which horse won the race ?????????????

Cheers. ( hic !)

  8. Love the hats! Looks like loads of fun!

  9. Aren't you all just the cutest in your spiffie little hats. Your's is the cutest. Glad you all had fun.

    Yes, those grannie square ends are the bear to sew in. But, you will be glad you did. The hide as you go, does not really work if it's actually going to be a useable blanket. And around here they are all used at one point in the day or another.
