Well...this weekend I handed over 7 of the 10 requested Queen's Champion Favors for Aikaterine Fitzwilliam. They are constructed of green velvet base lined with gold linen. The black rose is velvet with glass bead work for the leaf barbing and seed center. The wings and crown are cut from same gold linen as the lining is from. The "AR" as well as the stitch work around all the applique work is split stitch.
3 more to go, mail them off...then its onto the next project on my list!

This is the linen tunic that was made for Kyle. and of course the wool one. It was not as heavy weight and Leo's so i could turn the edges. Will embroider on it later.
Here is the wool tunic i made for leo with red blanket stitching done on neck and cuffs. Yes its a little big but i wanted to leave room for him to grow into.
So the due date for a bunch of projects has been passed. Yesterday at 12th Night, Dietrich received his laurel and completed his hood two hours before his ceremonial induction. And being that I was running on massive lack of sleep, I neglected to get close ups of the completed hood. (ive asked his lady to take some for me and send them along). I do have one of him kneeling in court after he was presented with it. Here:
It is an olive colored wool with a black linen lining. The laurel leaves are black velvet with gold metal thread couched around the edges.
Also completed, per my Laurels request (and for the sake of "yea i can do better than that") i redid the embroidered arm bands on Baron Seoan's tunic. Again...self induced temporary brain damaage neglected to let me remember to take anything but this shot:
I have a few more projects on my list but these were the primary focus the last few weeks.
I also made my boys four new tunics. Two wool and two linen. Pics of those will come later today when they are back from their Dad's house with them. Im quite proud of them.
More projects to come. Im whittling down my "I owe you" list so i can then concentrate on stuff for me....the one person sorely lacking in garb and "Schtuff".
Added later: Found these pics of the hood while i was working on it...since I havent gotten a pic yet from Master Dietrich of the finished hood ( i stupidly forgot to take a pic of...hello! Im a photographer...where is my brain sometimes!!)
