When the going gets tough, the tough get sewing

My family has been through a couple of major changes Both of them where for the best for all of us in the end but we had a lot of stress. (No, don't worry we didn't get divorced!) So a lot of my friends are asking me if I am okay and the answer is Yes! Now that things have settled down a little and my mind is clear enough again to get back to my projects I am actually quite happy! Keeping my hands and head occupied seems to be a very good therapy.

At this moment I am working on several projects:

  • A blue velvet 1880's cuirass bodice for a friend
  • a cotton 1840's work dress for myself
  • and a red and green striped knitted scarf special order by my husband as a colorful addition to his victorian/dickens costume.
So when the going gets tough, the tough get going...

Wow, that scarf is really bright!

I'm glad that the stress is easing off and you're getting to work on fun projects again. I look forward to seeing photographs of the 1880s bodice.
