All in a "ruff"

I'm working on a new layout of a falling ruff while recovering from this cold that seems to have attached itself to me lately. I'll post pictures tomorrow of the fabric and how I'm experimenting with the design.

Favor Finished

Well, one of the things that I've had on my working To-Do list was my fiance's favor that I had started for him so that he could wear my colors while out fighting on the field.

Finally after fussing with the embroidering of the needle and getting it to look semi-decent, it's DONE!

Now I can move to the next project and start work on that tomorrow. WHEW!

Decisions to make....

So I'm in the midst of looking at different button types to use on the shoulders of my gown that I've had on hold for forever. Coronation is in two months and I have commissions that I need to get working on so this gown needs to be completed and finalized so I can get it DONE...and to clear the working table. LOL!!!

So these are the buttons I'm looking at for this gown. I'm leaning towards the first one with my favorite fleur to be honest. However, the smaller second button is slightly appealing as well.

Making Some Progress

So now that I think I've got the neckline figured out a bit better, I'm making much faster progress on getting these pieces of Roman garb sewn together and finished.

Definitely a good thing with the timeline that I'm dealing with right now because we leave on the 23rd to drive to my fiance's family's house to do tilework..and then from there it's Pennsic or bust.

So far so good on the Roman pieces...let's keep hoping I can keep this pace up. :)
