First off, I made an 18thC pin ball. My mum made the silver ring, and then I worked the embroidery.

Thursday we headed to Shelburne Nova Scotia. It was a great weekend, just what we needed. It was warm enough for me and being right on the water, still cool enough for the rest of the gang. We hosted a tavern night on Friday evening which was a famous success! We'll have to do more of that. And now I am inspired to work on more projects.
The best part of the weekend for me personally, was learning that clothing that I made almost 20 years ago is still going strong, still being worn. Some of those uniforms are now on their third owners. This has encouraged me to start the business back up again. So this winter, I suspect I will be sewing as well as studying.
For now, I'm off to see if I can find a photo of Pierre in his new waistcoat, if not, you'll have to wait to see the rest of the suit!
