November challenge, bacteria blooming

Two challenge pieces to complete by the end of the year, and I’m rushing to get these completed.  November is a single bacterial colony on a microscope slide.

When I volunteered to assist with making costumes for the local pantomime, I thought I would just need my usual sewing kit. For the first costume, that was the case, dress for the female, youth lead,

However, when the next one was for the king of the rats, I needed to use tools less commonly associated with sewing.

Thanks to Virgin Trains..................
