In the area of IRCC progress, I have slowly been plugging away at the appliqué on the bodice. My goal was to finish that by the end of the week, but with my husband home and various other things going on, thats not going to happen. But I foresee it done by the end of next week at latest. My mantilla/sbergnia combo is cut out and hemmed, on arm slit is finished and the other about halfway so. I plan to trim it with a purple fringe, thanks to Hastings pointing me in the right direction.

I apologize for the lack of updates, but progress has been slow between Uprising War and finishing up customer projects and camping garb for the summer. I was able to sell several pieces of my used garb at Uprising, so whats left can now fit in the bin with a closed lid. That makes me happy. In the way of customer projects and projects for others in the next few months is a custom twin sized hand quilted quilt, riding shirt and matching jerkin for m'lords squire sister to wear for equestrian, as well as a another shift, venetian gown and perhaps an early florentine gamurra. I also have a stack of mending to do....I guess I'd been ignoring it till now, because suddenly it has become hugish and unavoidable.
