What's New?

I continue to embroider on the jacket project, now entering the third year.  I hope to have the embroidery finished by the end of summer, then on to other projects within this project...bobbin lace, lazer cutting silk for the over coat, that sort of thing.

In the meantime, I have been focusing on the 18thC as we've re-entered that hobby as a full time summer activity.  To that end, new suits for Pierre, new outfits for both Mum and I, and I am offering monthly workshops for the other members of the Atlantic Living Heritage Association.  I really should upload new albums of photos here, must finish some suits of clothes first though!

Stash Project 2011

this was a pic taken of me at Middleground, May 2011 by Lady Cat. I messed with photoshop a bit to get rid of the modern background. The jacket isn't quite finished in this photo, still needed buttons and buttonholes and the sleeve caps. I think I tweaked the sleeve heads a bit too.

You completely inspire me. I really need to get past the researching and hypothesis testing stage and actually make some clothing up.
