Back in September I published a post about a class I was helping to organize (but not teach!) on Egyptian faience – an early glass product that sort of is the meeting place between clay and glass.
Two weeks ago I posted about trying to de-stash some of my fabrics with an online “auction”. Tomorrow is the ‘closing’ of the auction of a bunch of wools, wool blends, and other coating/jacket fabrics.
There are more fabrics in my auction than I have pictured here… these are just a few of them. 🙂
To check out what I have for ‘auction’ please visit my Facebook page!
The Challenge: December – Special Occasion: make something for a special event or a specific occasion, or that would have been worn to special event or specific occasion historically.
This project was started in the summer when it was announced that my SCA friend Caterina would be elevated to the Order of the Laurel (the highest honour and responsibility in Arts & Sciences). I finished the final touches on this costume RIGHT before her elevation on November 5th, making it timed perfectly for the December HSM challenge.
I went through my stash of fabrics and picked out even MORE fabrics that I’m going to offer up for sale. Come check out my Facebook page and see what I have for offer.
Come help me thin down my stash!
You may have noticed from my posts about the “Celebration” Italian outfit, that I also had a hairpiece – since my own hair is not down past my waist!
For this I looked at my inspiration image, as well as a bunch of other images – many of which show a LONG ponytail, in sort of a ‘casing’, with a bit of adornment (ribbon, pearls, etc).
