I have much to post about at the costume blog and am hoping that I will get some time to do so over Easter, whilst also making lots of stuff and cleaning my house.
But in the meantime, I thought I would just pop this up here as a taster teaser of a future post.
I am having guest over for the weekend and am planning to do a weekend of food as eaten on board the doomed ship. There will be more but for now I shall leave you with the menu for Saturday nights grand dinner, which is the final meal eaten on 14 April 1912 by the First Class passengers:
