I've been sewing as part of a Big Barter lately. (And a little bit for me, as I stop quite so much faffing around in tertiary personas - trying to stick with 6thC and Bronze Age lately.)
But it's been good that I've done quite a bit of reading and garbing for High Medieval, since now I can help out a friend. This brave soul handed over her fabric stash an embarrassingly long time ago, and asked for a wardrobe's worth of "loose 14th" work + nicer clothes, that are fitting to a very accomplished potter. Here's my progress so far, with a few things I've thrown together for me, just to see what my stash is up to:
The three hangers in the center, (blue, brown, and blue) are done except hems, which I hope to finish this weekend at Kingdom A&S. When I'm not chatting and taking classes, which look really good this year! I want to check out these classes/demos:
- 10am The Honorable Lady Brighid of Ferncliff Early Period Embroidery
- 11am Lady Juliana verch Hoell Coptic/Tarim Naalbinding Stitch
- 1pm Baron Charles O'Connor The Period Concept of Beauty
- Print carving and regular wood carving Baroness Katherine of the Wode
though with temperatures in the 90s, attention span for me is always iffy.
I've done some Sable Sword cloak sewing, too, a couple of linen ones for summer, but I have no pictures of them, either in progress, or on their recipients.
