My friend Aimee from Pretty Wit helped me design these tags...aren't they awesome? I love that elephant so much.

Here's a few pictures I've come across so far...

The costumes were GORGEOUS. I feel like it's been ages since I've watched a costume film and this movie was like a breath of fresh air with all the beautiful Medieval costumes.

This was my first time knitting a hat so I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out even though I did drop a stitch (or two or three). It's a little snug for my big head though...so somebody may end up getting it in their Christmas stocking this year. ;) I love knitting...

I used to watch this movie all the time when I was younger...but it's really hard to find now for some reason. I finally found a used VHS copy online and I watched it for the first time in years the other night...and yep, I still love it. And I still love the costumes. Now I want to knit a sweater even more!
These are the only pictures I could find online:

My sewing corner is coming along nicely though! I'll post pictures when I finish moving everything in. :)
And then, hopefully, I'll start having some fun sewing projects to talk about. :)

I also think it would be fun to try to make some socks. They intimidate me too.

I'm sorry I've been so absent lately...it seems when one thing decides to break, everything does. Thus my lap top is not working and I've somehow offended the feeling of two sewing machines resulting in neither of them working for me. So I have been knitting here and there but mostly getting our new house ready to be moved into. I'm really quite excited about setting up sewing in a more permanent place. I'm trying to figure out just how I'm going to set it up. But that's all part of the fun. :)
So at the moment I'm up to my elbows in painting my bedroom and I shall hopefully be able to show lovely pictures one of these days. It's quite different from my usual style but I think it's going to be quite nice in the end.
Hopefully I'll get sewing machine working as well so I can get back to some projects I was in the middle of. Oh dear. Now you see why I hand sew. ;)

A grand total of 79 hand sewn eyelets...40 pieces of boning...
Okay...so I do still need to find lacing...and have some proper pictures taken.
Keep a weather eye on the horizon...

My starting goal is to do one costume study of each per month to give me some time to do research and see how it goes from there.
There's such a variety in Elizabeth's costumes I don't think I'll get bored!
I'm also going to try to organize the costume studies I've already done a bit better so they're all easier to find.
Also, what are some costumes you'd love to see studied? I would like to make a list of costumes you would like to learn more about and every now and then I'll pick one from the list to study.
I look forward to hearing your ideas!

But I've been getting a ways on my Bella Swan mittens while I'm watching it! I'm almost half done with the second mitten! However, I'm babysitting a friend's kittens and they sure do make knitting a challenge what with keeping them from running off with a mitten or a ball of yarn, not to mention climbing curtains and drinking out of my glass. ;)
