A Lifetime of Catching Up?

EEEK!  How long since my last catch up??'s yet another catch up...

I really do need to try harder, don't I!  So much has happened since my last blog, from Steampunk events all over the country, a local Regency event, Jane Austen Festivals in Bath, costume creating, and lots and lots of projects started and now filed under W-i-P!

As it has been a few years...I know, slapped wrist...I have just rediscovered this one, via a pin on Pinterest to a patchworking blog, also abandoned some years ago.  I do hope that there are still some people out there in Blogger-land, who will read this bit of 

Anyway, I now have my patchwork head on, and after years of making hundreds of hexies, I have finally got around to sewing them together!  The reason it has taken so long is because I could not decide on a design...but now I have.  I have always loved colourwash quilts, so that is what I am going to do!

previously, I made diamonds...and made a pair of Patchwork Pantaloons...totally crazy!

Okay, this shows them before I made them up, as I don't actually have any photos of them finished, only photos that other people took of me wearing them in Whitby, last year, but you can see how crazy they are! 

There are more patchwork projects on the go...hexie waistcoats, and, as I still have a lot of diamonds, I am going to make a jacket to go with the Pantaloons, and a waistcoat for Robert...though I have no idea how long all this is going to take!  

Okay, onwards and upwards...!
