Woops! Lost track of time...

UPDATE:

So, I've now got two camp dresses cut out and in varying stages of completion. Helewise is helping, for which I am grateful. I need to park my ass on the sofa, this week, and get some serious hand-sewing done before we can move on, in a couple of weeks. It's very exciting. I also expect to cut out/put together at least one coat. It's a frustrating experience, because I have to do it on my kitchen floor, but I'm optimistic that I'll figure out how to make it work. I'm looking very forward to finally using the glorious iron-on trim of subtle bling on it. It will be perfect. I need to get some frogs, too, now that I think about it.

Still on the go are the hood, chemise, and lacy apron. I see some Sir David Attenborough documentaries in my future. They're great for just turning on and then not really paying a lot of attention to.

I took some time, the other night, to find a few recipes from Scappi to attempt during the Great Lenten Food Experiment of 2017. Two fish, and one squash soup. I'll be posting the original (translated), plus my actual redaction, as well as a trip report, in case any of you loyal reader(s) want to try it yourself at home.

Pictures soon, of various and sundry. And hopefully more progress up on which to report. And an attempt to not take on any more projects until I cross some of these off my list as done.

I am much excite

The patterns to create a couple of zimarra have arrived. I am a-squee. I probably won't get to to it for a bit, but I'm glad to have it at the ready. Camping season will happen before I know it!

Meanwhile, play date with Beloved Laurel, today, wherein I will probably just work on the hand-stitching on the apron, and review potential recipes for the Great Lenten Experiment of '17. I still haven't decided on English, Italian, or French...
