I always crash/take time off from my sewing room whenever I finish a big project. Well, I recently finished two (the 1830s green silk Wives & Daughters Picnic dress and my new 1862 Widow's dress).
But now that it's been a couple weeks from the Moorpark event, my mind has been going again on projects I'd like to do. Despite my love of 1870s bustle fashions, I have more Regency costumes in my closet.
So in updating the Resources page with numerous online merchants and research sites, I ran across this blog on a Jane Austen Festival - in Australia. For those of you down there, if you attend next April - PLEASE send updates and pictures!
I would so love to attend myself. However, I think my first large scale Jane Austen Festival will be in Bath, UK.
...Then again, my brain has been tossing around a few ideas to implement on this side of the world in California.
