 So, I'm wearing black to 12th Night.  Big shock, I know.

I'm bringing our raven masks for the masque, since we'll both be in mostly black (though Bob is wearing his burgundy coat, and I'm wearing my burgundy bodies), but I'm still fiddling with my ruff.  It's the same one I wore to 12th Night last year, but this time I've pinned it flat, so it fans out around my face.

I just need to make a supportasse, but that's not happening between now and this weekend.  So hopefully it'll stay up with the support of the collars and the pins.

I feel like I should make something new, but honestly, I've got so many outfits that it seems like a waste.  This won't stop me in the end (especially since I have this great puke green velvet that's just whimpering at me to be made into something), but I can't work up much enthusiasm for new sewing.

Have I mentioned I hate making clothes?  I love having new outfits, but I just get so bored when I'm sewing.  Embroidery doesn't have the same effect on me, so I tend to do more of that.  I sometimes feel that I'm not really holding my end up, and that I should have something new for each major event, but I worked for ten years to have enough clothes so that I wouldn't have to do that.

Oh, man, I'm boring.

So here are some new icons for people to play with:

*sigh* I do have to hate you. Just a little.

It could be worse - I generally have to scramble around to get all three of us more-or-less dressed at all for any given event. Let alone in Style. But I'm working on it.

Part of my problem is that I also prefer handwork to the machine. I probably will eventually move more or less entirely to handsewing. But I need the machine speed for a bit longer to get us each ENOUGH of a wardrobe to make do. I DO like your handsewing techniques. I made a little coif last night using them. It's a bit small for me, but should be adorable on my daughter (Arrrgghhh!! The cute, it burns, it burns!!!!). I also have a kolier for my dutch gown about 1/2 done. *musical vamp* Someday......

Cool, I'm glad you like the techniques - I did that article for people who were maybe a little unsure about how hard the whole handsweing things was.

Clothing kids and husbands makes it harder - I haven't changed sizes in 10 years, and Bob makes many of his clothes himself, so I don't have that kind of pressure.
