The rest of the evening we had a DJ on the decks for more jive classics. I danced with a few people I'd never danced with before which is always fun, though sometimes a bit perilous depending on who you are dancing with. The floor was pretty packed and there were more than a few instances of hitting someone on the way past, not to mention a little slip sliding on the talc in the corner near the band stand (it was ok, Miss T saved me from going over head first!). On the whole a pretty enjoyable evening with some very enjoyable dancing and a splendid band.
In other news, I have a new sewing machine (a Janome Sewist 525s, since you ask) so I will be able to get back to some stitchery. Hurrah! It is all very exciting!
