However, I thought I'd share a few here too!
My current total is 73.8 Miles, with the most recent walk being up Weatherlam, a mountain in the Lake District near Coniston.
Today's Light up Lancaster workshop was a great success, lots of people turned up! But all at different times, which enabled me to talk to everyone. There were people of all ages attendance which was great and everyone seemed to enjoy getting involved! Some people made several flowers or badges, and I was impressed with the enthusiasm to keep going, and high level of results! Thanks to all attendees!
Just been catching up with some bits today.I shortened this coat that you may remember from an earlier blog.I did like it longer, but it's more usable at this length, which will be good as winter approaches! And here's also a bundle of chiffon frills that I made to add to a dress, but decided it was better without.so I'll save them up for another time!
I did some fitting alterations on the bodice today, and added some ruffles to the jacket sleeves.the bodice still needs some bones putting in.I shall join it to the skirt before putting fastenings in though. Here's also a photo from a photoshoot I did with my sister on Friday.She got some great photos of me playing in the lake in my boat sails dress. More are available on my Facebook page- www.facebook.com/duxburycostume
I'm working full time at the theatre again now, so thought I'd take advantage of the bank holiday to finish a couple of jobs that I've taken on at my studio. Then since I was here anyway I thought I'd use the opportunity to create a few more rounds of ruffles...I quite like how the patterned ones look.
