I got rather bored while I recovered and started all kinds of little crafty projects to keep myself occupied.
Here's a sneak peek to some of the things I've been up to. I'll do some more detailed blog posts on some of my new projects later on.
So here is what I have been doing the past week!
While stuck in bed I did some bead work......
I made some looped bead necklaces from tiny coral and lapis lazuli beads. Very stylish for 1812! Plan to sell these at Jane Fest in July.
......and I made a bonnet......
Made this simple straw bonnet trimmed with ribbon and some fake flowers. Also for sale.
.....and some more jewelry......

....and styled a fabulous 1790's hedgehog hair do wig !
When coming home from the hospital after surgery I found a package waiting for me. It contained a wig I had ordered on ebay a month ago. It came all the way from china to arrive that day to make me happy. Well really I'm sure it was coincidence but it brightened my day anyway! Alas I was not feeling so hot and had to wait 5 days till I felt ready to tackle styling it. But I think it was worth the wait. Gotta love crazy 1790's big hair!
So you see I have been quite busy despite my indisposition. So on with blogging and crafting an man do have lot's to do!
