May Reflections

May has been such a long and short month. For me, with all the various work stuff, it has flown by in a blurr. Spring has finally come to New York. All be it, a damp spring. As problematic as the excessive wet has been for family and friends, I have to say, it was nice to enjoy the sounds of the thunderstorm while sitting in the historic village last Saturday.

I started out the month giving a talk on Millinery Nitty-Gritty to a local reenacting group. The presentation focused on pieces from the Greene Collection at the Genesee Country Village and Museum. Hmmm. I seem to lack photos of that day.

The month really has been a fog with the rest of my busy-ness. I am having trouble recalling everything else I did. Let’s see….. I ordered new straw in pretty period colors… I finally was able to order a remnants set from Family Heirloom Weavers. I’ve managed to hem a few of those for runners…. I did a straw fan experiment….. I added a few wardrobe essentials…. And, of course I made a few hats and bonnets. I hope to have one more finished and available tonight too. Note: Regency pieces will be available after the GCVM War of 1814/Jane Austen event in June.

Coming up…..

  • I am currently working on a unique special project. I am having a lot of fun with it.
  • I really need to get a duct tape dummy made so I can make my pink silk dress. Otherwise, I won’t have it done for July. I also would like to make up one of my lengths of wool.
  • I will be at GCVM for: War of 1812/Jane Austen in June, Independence Day, Civil War event, and may be a couple others in July.
