I plan too much, and have too little time

So! This week I have a free week between lectures and exams. Therefore will I try to fill my blog with a lot of new and exciting stuff. The blog have seemed a bit silent recently, but that do not reflect what I have been doing. Right now, am I working on multiple projects. However, I will tell more about them tomorrow in their own post.
This weekend did a participate in my first WW2 event called Bunker By Night. I was a part of the historical reenactment group called Danforce/The Danish Brigade in Sweden. Here i wore a completely new dress sewn from the 1940’s pattern bought back in January together with the fabric. This is also a HSF challenge. So I will be making two separate posts. One for my new 1940 dress, and one for the Danforce reenactment group.. You can see some pictures at the Facebook side. Link should be to the right —>

And just to make this post more fun. I received my orders from India today! Three sarees and one pair of shoes. The sarees is made of 100 % cotton. One of them is a bit modern with sequins. Nevertheless, I think I will just remove that. I hope that these will turn out to be some lovely regency dresses. The shoes will make some nice 18th century shoes when covered in silk and decorated.

The ugliest thing in the world!

I have created the most ugly reticule ever! I am so unhappy with it. But now it’s finished. Started working on it last spring. Found it again tonight while cleaning, just to realize I only need stitch on a braid. I believe it is never to be used for reenactment. But perhaps it can be used for storage. At least I got some new knowledge from this project.
