I drafted and did up a muslin for a partlet yesterday, and today I cut it out. I have black wool for the outside, and some nice fluffy soft green flannel for the lining.

pictures part one~ )

And for the other bit of work I'm trying to get done for Sunday, I think getting the one panel done will be no problem at all. I'm using a pattern taken from, which won't load properly on my phone so I can't give a direct link to the pattern. But anyway, done on 28 count embroidery cotton, in Vineyard Silk Classic in Conch, Nantucket Red, and Snorkel, is what will be half of a purse.

Made it to belvidere. The guys directing parking lot traffic were not so subtly watching as I got dressed. Now I'm just waiting for more people who know what they're doing to show up....

It is a truth universally acknowledged that an empty box must be in want of a cat.

So I ran out to AC Moore earlier to pick up some hat boxes. They're 50% off right now, btw~~ the large ones fit everything but my big straw and wool felt hats from Williamsburg, so those will have to go in a plastic tote or something, I suppose. I also labeled them all so I'll know exactly what is in each box xD

The irises in the yard are juuuuuuuust about to bloom. And we have so many different colors that once they do it's practically a rainbow. :3

Mom and I went to Friendly's for dinner, because she was craving ice cream, and the bear in the security cam caught my eye.

So I've made a few decisions since CosCon. One is to make at least one new outfit a month, starting with my green stripy dress (that I need to get back to). The other is the 365 days of pictures. And today, while visiting my cousin for her son's 2nd birthday, after a completely horrible rainy drive, we saw the most beautiful rainbow after present opening. So here's my first picture:

I'll reply to comments tomorrow, but I just want to toss this up before I hit the pillow~ I did most of the Hermione overskirt this evening! I just need to go through and tack down the hems and facings and the pleats that aren't in a seam, but otherwise it's almost done~ :3 it just looks a little weird on my dress form because my petticoats are still in my suitcase, which is in my car. >_>
