Here’s what I have been working on the past couple of days…
The back of Mme de Bordeaux's round gown. I do have more finished than this, just no pictures yet. I decided it would be fun to play with the layout of the fabric. I’m excited to see her in the finished product, of course.
And a new fan. This is the inspiration. It was a fan created to celebrate King George III’s first recovery from his madness.
Progress so far. It’s not that exciting yet, but it will be once the gold paint is added.
Well, I am off to see the dentist, aka my husband. I actually have a cavity. I have never had a cavity in my life before and I’m pretty bummed about it. Especially since I take good care of my teeth. Oh well, at least Aaron will be doing the work and he’s really, really good at what he does.
We also have an event tomorrow, and I plan to wear my new Chintz gown. Le Bon Ton is going to the Portland Art Museum. It’s a rather small museum, but they have a wonderful collection of 18th century silver and house wares as well as some lovely paintings from our time period.
Have a lovely rest of your weekend.
