Time:05:56 pm


More at the other blog on the Norse hood. I'm very pleased with it and would like to make one for myself at some point.

First cucumber in the garden

No sewing pictures right now but here is a picture of a cucumber in my garden right now. I had to move a few of the herbs because the cucumber vines have taken over everything. It looks like I'll get a good 30 or 40 cucumbers out of this thing. Good thing I planted dill - pickles!!!!!!!

Sunset in Maryland

No special filters or editing on this photo. It was taken at about 8:30 pm outside of my house. The entire sky was very, very orange. It really looked like it was on fire. This entry was originally posted at http://isabelladangelo.dreamwidth.org/1043013.html. Please comment there using OpenID.

Subject:Why not to wear skinny jeans...
Time:12:19 pm
Besides the obvious that only maybe 2% of the population can wear skinny jeans and look good in them over the age of 16, this woman learned a very hard fashion lesson. She had been helping a friend move all day. When she went to go home, she couldn't feel her legs, tripped, and was stranded for some time before help came and she went to the hospital. They had to cut the jeans off of her at the hospital and discovered that she had lost almost all circulation in one leg.

Don't be a fashion victim. Don't wear skinny jeans. Your ability to walk depends on it!

Subject:Spring Cleaning!
Time:09:03 am
I've listed a few handbaskets up on Etsy. Although I didn't make the baskets - I find them at the thrift store I'm always going to- I do line them and, in a few cases, paint them. I'll put up some of my old garb as well over the next few days. I have some old jewelry as well that I think I'm going to put up on ebay.

Subject:My new dress
Time:10:33 pm
DSC07954

I fixed it last night at the last minute. The pattern needs some tweaks but it fits pretty well now. I'm using if for my Historical Sew Monthly project this month - this dress is very practical after all.

I really like this one although I'd like the bodice to be an inch longer. I didn't cut the back on the fold because I had only 4 yards of fabric and wanted to max out the fabric in the skirt. Instead, since the fabric was wide, I cut the bodice out what I had left after the skirt. This entry was originally posted at http://isabelladangelo.dreamwidth.org/1032107.html.

Pictures later but I dug up the yard and planted a garden. It's a rather large garden for me. I've planted strawberries, basil, oregano, sage, rosemary, thyme, lavender, cucumbers, lettuce, carrots, and mint. I still need to do some yard work but I do have a garden now (and it's all very yummy stuff!). Once the front yard is done, I need to tackle the backyard...although I'm getting to the point where I might pay someone to do that. I hate ivy.

Subject:Maryland Fairie Festival Anyone?
Time:07:59 am
The Maryland Fairie Festival is being held June 13 & 14 at 2564 Silver Rd.
Darlington,MD 21034. This is in northern Maryland (a few minutes outside of Havre de Grace since most of us that travel north know where that is) and not far off of route 1. I would suggest carpooling only because it's $5 to park the car on top of the ticket fee. Tickets are $15 for adults.

I haven't been to this one in many, many years. When I last went, I recall it being somewhere near Silver Spring - the people that run the festival basically rented a field and put up tents. Now, it's actually on the map as an attraction in northern Maryland. It's being held at a campground. Anything elvish, renaissance, medieval, or fairie is good for garb at this one. It was originally created to celebrate Queen Elizabeth I as the "fairy queen" but it has long since diverged from that to all things fairies.

If anyone would like to join me, let me know! I really just want an excuse to wear my fairy outfit. ;-) More info at: http://www.marylandfaeriefestival.org/ This entry was originally posted at http://isabelladangelo.dreamwidth.org/1030105.html. Please comment there using OpenID.

Subject:Shoes?
Time:06:40 pm
In case anyone is a size 7 or wears a Euro 38, I have a few shoes to sell:
American duchess and DanskoCollapse )

Feel free to ask any questions. I'm happy to bring any of these with me to Fort Fred to save on shipping (you might have to remind me beforehand). My guess is that shipping will be around $15 each. If these aren't spoken for by Saturday, I'll put them up on Etsy.
