May Reflections

May had wings this year. This is both because if flew by so fast and because it felt like several projects finally took off.

The sun finally came out. The birds started singing. The world became green. And…… I finally got to get dressed and do a demonstration!

It was wonderful being back at the museum as spring arrived. The visitors were Amazing. If you missed the video, be sure to take a look over on YouTube.

Being asked to do this demonstration during the museum’s Antique Show was a nice nudge to finally make my first 1830s dress. An 1830s dress has been on the to-do list for several years. But, life just kept getting in the way. I am very pleased with how the dress came out as well as the little cap. I still need to make a pelerine. But, I also want a second 1830s dress now. To hear about the details of how this dress went together, take a look at this video.

I am very excited to finish a new In Detail and a Kit to go along with it!!! This In Detail: Earl’s Ball and Corded Ball Pin Cushion Kit will be available the morning of June 1st to kick off the new month!.

I recorded a couple videos for Whimsey Wednesday worth noting: In this video on the Importance of Good Underclothes, I got very honest about fiber and fit. For my readers who want a simple, relaxing, yet useful project, here is a video on making ribbon sachets. Keep the smell of spring and summer with you year round.

I didn’t get as many millinery pieces done this month as I would like. I was so busy with making some things for myself and life stuff.

    Best,
