I’ve been puttering away on an 1870s bustle ensemble using green, peach, and plaid. Here’s a little peek- the ruffles and trim are just pinned on right now. I’m using the Truly Victorian Parisian Trained Skirt pattern. I’ve made a skirt from this pattern once before and really love it.
I’ve been spending some time outside playing with flowers and reading. I’m still making it through the Anne of Green Gables books and am about halfway done with Rainbow Valley. I love L.M. Montgomery’s books. Reading them is like visiting with old friends.
The Aloha rose is a new addition to our garden. I’m waiting impatiently for the bloom to open!
Hope you are having a beautiful week.
