2014 Review and 2015 Plans

I didn't make nearly as much as I have in previous years, but sewing for other people for a living, plus my ongoing wrist problems, plus buying a house (!!) meant I was often tired. But I the things I did make generally took a lot of time to construct and research. No quick, slap dash projects this year!
I also presented at three academic conferences, taught a class at Costume College, and studied original 17th century artifacts for work. What a year!

2015 should be pretty awesome, although I regret to say that Costume College probably isn't going to happen... Since I live so far away from my family, spending time with them is my top priority. After a year hiatus, we are resuming our family pilgrimage to Hawaii (this will be year 16!). And I will be able to go to faire in CA! That vacation will be about two weeks long, in May, which is just too close to late July/early August... But we'll see. I haven't completely given up hope yet!

Here are my plans for 2015 sewing, if my wrist cooperates, more or less in chronological order:
  • Felicity sack gown finished
  • 1610s silk gown
  • 1560s gown, kirtle, petticoat, smock, and hood
  • 1860s corset 
  • 1860s Swiss waist
  • 1840s undergarments
  • 1840s gown
  • Cotton polonaise finished
  • 1860s outerwear 
  • 1860s wool gown

Wow, you've done some amazing projects this past year! I look forward to seeing the Felicity sack gown. I still have my Felicity doll from when I was little, she sparked my love of all things colonial!

Few weeks ago my girlfriend told me that she was fed up, so she packed her stuff and left me while I was taking a walk to cool off. When I got back, I was so messed up because I didn't even know what to do, it was like my whole life was coming to an end. That night I drove to a friend’s house and he was nice enough to give me a description of a man who did spells that could bring her back for me. He said this man brought her fiancĂ©e back to him after 2days. The man's email is emutemple@gamil.com, it was this man that then did a spell and brought Claire back to my life. She was now so humble and calm, she was respectful and lovely even more than i can imagine. This man is really strong and accountable. I never regret anything through him. meet him if you need help in your love life. visit his website you may find your solution there https://emutemple.wordpress.com/
