I haven't gotten too much work done on my projects, but I continue to work as much as possible. The naturalist said I have a nerve connection problem due to a mineral imbalance, but I am still going to go to my family doctor. I have had a lot of pain this week, including my right shoulder and elbow, so I don't know what is up with that. even with all the pain, I still continue to do what I can. I am trying to get a lot of cording done that Jehan can take with him to Pennsic, since we seem to misplace it so much. I figured if I make a bunch, he can use it, and I am sure we are not the only people who go though so much of it. I also started a new pair of socks in acrylic yarn. It is the same pattern that I have been working on, since I prefer to work in cheaper acrylic to try out a pattern so I don't ruin a more expensive fiber (I tried to be adventurous and failed, obviously). This pair will be green and brown and the pair in cotton is currently blue and red. If I can get my photo albums to work, I'll try to get some up.
I have also made one snood and started my second one. The completed one has beading, and the second one will not. I have been researching snoods a bit, and supposedly they are not a period hair piece. I will continue to look this up, and see what I can find.
This week, I must get some schoolwork done, and pack next week to move back to AEthelmarc. I am finishing up my first set of clinicals in the next 2 weeks, and will start my second set the week of July 18th. I hope to have internet yet while I am at my new location, so hopefully I can continue this blog. I feel like if I write it down, I am actually being held responsible for what I want to be accomplishing. I also love coming here and seeing what else everyone is working on.
I must also start thinking about working on my wedding dress, since I have never made a Tudor gown before, I want to give myself plenty of time to work on it, I just have to start counting pennies and find the perfect fabric ;). This will push my sewing ability since I normally hand sew, and really only T-tunics. I would love to have a version of Mary Queen of Scots white wedding dress, but I cannot find a full length view of her dress.
For some reason I have a huge interest in Mary, and I would love to learn more about her. Hopefully I can accomplish her dress without to many problems.
Well enough of me rambling on for now, I must get back to work...until later,
