in my spare time...

It's been pointed out to me that I've been bad this year about mentioning projects and then not posting pics of the finished results. So here are some of the projects I've cruelly neglected to show you...

An 1860s work dress (commission). I just finished this today. Not a bad result for my first venture into the 1860s, my first ever piping and my first dog-leg closure - man I sure learned a lot on this one!

A video to show how the closure works ('cause I was trying to explain it to a non-costuming friend and a video is just easier!).

A Steampunk style mini Wellington top hat (commission). Learned a lot on this one too, mostly that scaling wellington hats is much trickier than you'd think. Keeping the size and the proportions right at the same time was quite the challenge, as was cutting and lining up all those chains to make that pretty swag! I thought I'd lose my mind on both parts!

Quilt Square for a Friendship quilt (gift). Not bad for someone completely out of practice and not that good anyway at block piecing. I only quilt for very special people in my life, which this gal definitely is - I can't wait to see the look on her face when it's given to her!
