My first finished historical item of 2013!

I'm sorry to say that I've barely sewn anything this month. . . But not sorry to say that I have been knitting up a storm! And just yesterday, I finished these 18c mitts, from Gloria's excellant "Taylor" pattern (but with some small changes, like making them a bit narrower). They don't get a page on my web site because they were a gift for my friend Sarah!

And actually, 100% of the sewing I've done this year has been accomplished at Sarah's house, during two sewing meets. I'm about 98% of the way done with one of my 2012 UFOs (the Lizzy bonnet), which I'll be finishing and posting about later today, if all goes well. . .

Which brings me to my next topic of conversation. . . I think I'm going to jump on board the Historical Sew Fortnightly bandwagon, albeit a little bit late! These two projects will satisfy the first two challenges. . .

Challenge #1: Bi/Tri/Quadri/Quin/Sex/Septi/Octo/Nona/Centennial
Well for this one. . . Sarah's mitts! They're meant to be 18th century, and can work into Regency, so let's just call them 1712-1812 and say I met this challenge (just a little bit late). ;)

Challenge #2: UFO
This will be my Lizzy Bonnet, my UFO from 2012. . . As of the end of last year, it was sitting around just being a covered brim, plus a crown that was partially prepared to be attached. . . And now it's a little strip of binding away from being done! Stay tuned. . .


  1. Yay, HSF! So glad you decided to join!

    Oh, and also, I just want to let you know that I've nominated you for the Liebster Blog Award!


    1. Aww, thank you so much!!! I've never been nominated for a blog award before. :)
