About Me

My photo

I'm a textile fanatic.  If it has to do with fiber, it's for me.  I love my almost fourteen year old son, cats and sheep.  I love historical costuming and most days you'll find me researching or reproducing clothing from any one of many time periods that have caught my fancy.

Shannon and Lynn's Pockets and Hoops

I've finished the design for my niece, Shannon's 1770's pockets, that will be worked in corded and stuffed quilting, with white work embroidery.  The outer layer is a fine linen, backed with linen dimity and faced with same.  Pocket back will probably by a striped linen in natural and half-bleached.  Stitching will be with linen thread, the cording is a thick, loosely spun cotton yarn and the padding is carded wool.
