I’ve begun work on a Regency gown. Here is the fabric; the necklace and bracelet are made with green garnets by my friend who’s going on the Historical Costume tour with me:
It should look somewhat similar to this red gown that I modeled for a seamstress-friend last year:
Sewing a whole dress is a new experience for me. I’ve made a tiered skirt before, a doll dress, pillow covers, and other, even simpler things. The more I do it, the more I enjoy it. Do any of you sew?
A beloved activity of mine is martial arts. I also love teaching, so whenever I’m called upon to teach at my martial arts school, which I have been doing for a few weeks now, I feel busy and fulfilled. Of course, our martial arts is absent of any mysticism; it’s all about agility, self-defense, and a good attitude. I’m a second-degree black belt, and I really desire to keep up the practice until I can no longer move, which hopefully won’t be for decades yet! Basically, I just love being in motion. What is your favorite exercise or sport?
For my final news, I am at work on an author website. It’s so fun to build and design! In fact, I should be working on it now … my goal is to make it presentable as soon as possible. I’ll let you know when it’s finished and ready for viewing! There’ll be a link on my blog.
In short, God is good! I mean that with all possible sincerity. Each day brings more of His faithfulness and kindness to light. I hope you’re having a great week!
