I have returned from Williamsburg and I am slowly sorted through my pictures. It was absolutely AMAZING; words cannot describe how wonderful the trip was. I will be posting pictures and stories soon, I promise.
In the meantime, here are some pictures of the final projects I completed right before I left for CW. Enjoy!
Attr. to John Hoppner, Portrait of a lady, ca.1785-1786, National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne
While doing research on 18th century hats, I stumbled across this beauty! I decided I must have this hat in my wardrobe.
I am very pleased with the result! I jokingly refer to it as the hat of doom.
The second project was a simple embroidered reticule. My older reticules have definitely seen better days.
I’m very happy with the results and it held up beautifully during my trip.
I promise to have pictures and more on the trip soon.
