Gift for Friend Grey Linen with Purple embroidered....Can't find pieces!
1 Kirtle in teal -Need to find sleeves (Again SIGH)

I have dozens of things that are actually sitting about but, I am getting things done, I have to spend the rest of February and March getting the Guys things done and when I have some time I can do my own things that have been sitting forever!  I am hoping by the time March Crown arrives my 45 peices of UFO's will be down to 4. Hey? I have hopes not reality.....!!!

On a side note? Don't bring any boxes from big warehouse places, we brought in some and invited some unwelcome guests to our home.  While the Exterminator said he could not find any evidence of said infiltration? We have seen them and so we had to have the entire Kitchen taken apart, put into bins and stored in our dining room.  Our Kitchen is 18 X 20, seriously HUGE.  It took almost 8 hours to get everything out and into bins.  Exterminator arrived at 8am sharp, and it has taken 4 days putting things back into the Kitchen after spending 1 whole day washing every surface!  The best thing is that We get to organize!  I love this but it put my creative projects on hold.

Tomorrow~ Silk Painting!!

Fettburg is going to be making silk Banners.  I will be taking pictures to show people what we are doing!

Tourney Gear for the Men in My Life

February!!! I can't believe January is gone! November 2011 the youngest son was 5' 5" and now? He is 5'8"!! I am going to make some Tourney Garb for him, some new pants again as well as a couple Tunics, yes I do make basic garb, especially when he is changing so rapidly.  I am also making him a Non-waled Red corduroy Elizabethan, so that when we get out to Faire, or there is a special day at SCA, he will have something awesome to wear.

Also, my Adorable Husband, he makes my heart beat, so he needs some new things and I have been working on several things for the past year, but I never out them together, talk about UFO's (Unfinished Objects) so for the next Month? It is not about MOI- I know right? 

I am going to spend and expend time and energy to make my boys look fabulous.  Oh? And I found my perfect Motto for this year!!  Buy Purses- You never have to worry about looking too fat! LOL

So onto my Doublet/Jerkin Inspiration:

Here is an Extant Piece C. 1600's     This is German Wams  So sexy Arming Doublet.
Strapwork                 I am really into the extra trim and extra stuff
