It’s been awhile, for those of you who are interested, hasn’t it?
I haven’t been lazy, however! Just working on projects that weren’t my own. The big things were that the husband got Plauricaned (what we’ve determined the combination of Pelican and Laurel on the same day is), and that went mostly swimmingly, and I’ve spent the last few weeks living and breathing the stepping down clothing for Ailgheanan and Amber, who just stepped down as King and Queen of Atenveldt, with a side-trip down the land of a cap of maintenance for a friend’s Pelican elevation.
That last one will get an update when I redo some aspects of the cap. I want to talk construction more in-depth in reverse. It’s modern, all things considered, but I do like it.
This brings us to where we go from here. I really should keep up the momentum and work on things, considering that I took a few days off to completely reset and do absolutely nothing but snuggle the pugs and watch shit on YouTube.
Major fall/winter plans (that don’t include finishing up projects I already have) are:
- Beer! I’m planning on making a sahti
- *Finally* appliquéing my apron dress for crown. Because I don’t care how inaccurate it is, I want it.
- A new fighting tunic for the husband (because I like having multiple for him).
- Figuring out a version of the Kostrup dress. This will be my first time smocking/pleating like that, and I want to make sure I’ve got a good idea for it.
