Well here is the progress report so far on Everyone is Away Pennsic; sew-a-thon. One waistcoat/jacket cut and ready to sew that is the blackwork-like one, so this is on the sewing table of projects The other the red/pink embroidered the sleeves are set in and hook and eyes are next. Created a wool lined bodice and put pink trimmed tabs on the shoulders and waist line. Hemmed a shirt for attaching right to the dress of pink woven silk, this was done the weekend before last.
Found 10 yards of sage green silk and going to create a kirtle from this one with attached skirt. So this is finally off the sewing table to be created over last weekend. Looking forward to seeing how this will work out, still have to hem it to the right length.
I finally finished the 14th century hood project as this has embroidery in chain, split and running stitch lined in green and gold linen a white linen upper and cuffed hood. I leaned to make the slips, hood and project plan with Mistress Antoinette de la Croix and Hrefna frupikona porgrimsdottir from Shire of Abhainn Ciach Ghlais, St. Claire embroidery event. Organized by Jaqueline De Molieres, her excellency Mistress Alicia Langlen, and staff.
Will be taking the opportunity to go through my stash of dresses and list some up for sale. This will take a while to complete as many very attached to for many reasons. Today took a good look into organizing my fabric stash. Purchased totes to store it all surprisingly all fits put for one area underneath my sewing table, I will later have to buy one more tub for all that. Though I went through and eliminating many unusable scraps.
Feeling much better have reorganized and now also rehomed my chancellor minor toys to the proper officer. So that made room also for the tote storage. Will possibly have to look into another steamer trunk to store more gowns and skirts in for this. Not in a hurry as I have means to hang it all up and put in away in other ways.
Now back to the sew a thon,
