April Reflections

I don’t know about where you are, but here this April has been the month of all seasons. We’ve had record warmth, record cold, and record snow.

This month wraps up out March/April Pocket Challenge.  I have been stitching away on my red/green pocket in hope of actually getting it done. For a while, I didn’t think I would.

I made my 1830s stays using Redthreaded’s pattern.  I was pleased with the pattern and how well it fit my me.

I started my first 1830s dress. Finally. Or should that be Finally.  With two weeks until I need it, the skirt is together and the bodice slipped & drafted.

This month’s millinery was done in groups. There were also a couple that you didn’t get to see.

Coming Ahead:

  • The May/June Cap to Crowns Challenge
  • Finishing my 1830s dress
  • Many opening days: Sonnenberg Gardens, Genesee Country Village & Museum,  Linwood Gardens. I hope to get in a good walk at each of these this month.
  • Pinking Demonstration at GCVM during the Antique Show. (This should keep me from shopping.)
  • Fabric and Swatch Book Zoom discussion for a local group.
  • Working on the extant straw bonnets: Special content available on Patreon.
